Question What is the the UK Landscape Institute for?
Answer: The answer, from the UK Landscape Institute’s best known and longest serving president, Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe, it that its primary aim is to promote the art of landscape design. On the cover of his book on The Landscape of Man he wrote that: ‘The world is moving into a phase when landscape design may well be recognized as the most comprehensive of the arts. Man creates around him an environment that is a projection into nature of his abstract ideas. It is only in the present century that the collective landscape has emerged as a social necessity. We are promoting a landscape art on a scale never conceived of in history.‘
