A Reception History of Early Modern Landscape Design

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

This project aims to address the problem of how to develop a reception history of designed landscapes. It expects to generate new knowledge in the area of landscape history through an innovative history of early modern gardens focused on reception rather than design, a detailed case study of the experiential dimensions of the Sacred Wood in Bomarzo (Italy), and the initiation of a global reception history of gardens. Expected outcomes of this project include new methods and techniques for the analysis of landscape and enhanced capacity to build international collaborations. This should provide significant benefits for the understanding of the socio-cultural uses and preservation of heritage landscapes by both scholars and the public.
