A Marathon of Talks About Gardens at Serpentine Gallery

A Marathon of Talks About Gardens at Serpentine Gallery

Taking place this weekend , the subject matter will be gardens: history of garden design, poetry, exploration of their spacial, urban and architectural importance, conservation, bio-diversity, museums, Kew's Seed Bank, walled gardens, kitchen gardens, and on and on. So who will be there? Interestingly, Stefano Boeri, the architect of the fabulous looking Bosco Verticale in Milan. It is 27 stories high and will be the first vertical forest. If the units were individual houses it would require 50,000 sq m of land, and 10,000 sq m of woodland so it's a major innovation.
