Dominic Cole returns to Eden as part of annual homage to Geoffrey Jellicoe

Dominic Cole is to give this year's Landscape Institute Jellicoe lecture overlooking a lunar-like landscape of his own creation, the Eden Project.

Cole worked with Eden Project mastermind Tim Smit, following a successful partnership of the two men on the Lost Gardens of Heligan, also in Cornwall. The landscape architect used to work for Land Use Consultants but went solo last January.

He has won high acclaim for work on some of Britain’s most historic landscapes, and balances design work with his role as chairman of the Garden History Society and of the National Trust Parks & Gardens advisory panel.

The lecture on 8 November is named after luminary landscape and garden designer Geoffrey Jellicoe, whose book on Italian Gardens of the Renaissance (1925) led to a commission for the design of the garden at Ditchley Park.

Two of his favourite projects, the Water Garden in Hemel Hempsted and the Kennedy Memorial in Runnymede, are considered modern masterpieces and Cole has been instrumental in moves to restore the former.
