Kim Wilkie is one of the most interesting figures working in the field of landscape architecture, whose work has included the revival of the montado landscape in Portugal and on the creation of a new city near Muscat in Oman.
Kim will talk about spaces that trigger memories, smiles or shivers. Among other places he will cover the Kennedy Memorial at Runnymede, the Gulag Archipelago in the White Sea and the views from Strawberry Hill and Pope’s Villa in Twickenham.
‘Each place has its own special character and identity – a continuous conversation between the physical form and the lives lived and shaped within it. As a landscape architect I try to understand the memories and associations embedded in a place and the natural flows of people, land, water and climate.’
