Do Jardim do Mundo ao mundo dos jardins – Lisbon (Portugal)

A journey through the art and culture of gardens

By travelling through history via the origins of gardens towards the gardens of the future, the landscape architect Aurora Carapinha invites us to delve into the world of gardens, of their meaning and their role in culture and society. This voyage includes garden art, the history of garden art, garden projects and garden design. The above fields, and many more, offer tools to study and analyse gardens in all their cultural, ecological, artistic, anthropological and philosophical dimensions.
Based on the different scientific disciplines that analyse this human construction, this talk proposes to reflect and to debate on the variables and invariables of gardens – those that define their very essence, in time and space, and that transform a space into a garden, in the act of its design and its construction and in the determining features of its experience.
