The ‘ancient impenetrability’ of Charterhouse Square: recorded lecture
We were delighted that acclaimed landscape designer Todd Longstaffe-Gowan could give our September online lecture. Todd conceived and created the gardens in Charterhouse Square. Where previously there was a car park and not much more – he has created a lovely urban oasis right on the edge of the City.
In his talk, filmed outside in Charterhouse Square, Todd discusses how his scheme for the recent refurbishment of Charterhouse Square is intended to enhance the inherent qualities of a place imbued with a remarkable atmosphere, redolent of great antiquity and pre-Reformation monasticism, and possessing an antiquarian interest unrivalled in other London squares.
