Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, Gardener & Historian

Todd Longstaffe-Gowan takes on a range of diverse projects both in Britain and abroad. Many of them have included an element of conservation; Todd brings to his garden design a sense of the complexities of our relation to the past that is informed by his training and experience as an architect, landscape architect, cultural geographer and historian. He has a strong interest in the sculptural and dramatic potential of landscapes, and in the ways in which their aesthetic possibilities relate to the uses, activities and symbolic functions for which they are destined.
