"In our first lecture, we explore Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe's designs for the John F Kennedy Memorial at Runnymede. This talk is the first in our series, A People's Elysium: Geoffrey Jellicoe's Brave, New & Bold Public Landscapes, focusing on three of his pivotal landscape designs. £5 each or £12 for the series…
Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe was one of the 20th century's greatest landscape architects. His contribution to landscape design, a discipline he credited as the 'Mother of all Arts', including also his writings on landscape, and his influence in shaping and nurturing the young profession, were all hugely significant.
Jellicoe's traditional classical education, combined with his interest in the arts, and psychology and the subconscious, deeply influenced his creativity and the landscapes and gardens that he designed… In this three-part series of talks, we explore three seminal projects completed between 1955-1965, a decade that may be regarded as a turning point in Jellicoe’s long and distinguished career. The Cadbury Factory at Moreton, the Water Gardens at Hemel Hempstead and the JFK Memorial at Runnymede, these landscapes are all now on the Historic England Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest, but how have they all fared, what more do we know about them, and what is their future like? Join us and discover more…"
