Hardwick Park

Landscape Regeneration

Metaphor designed a series of interpretative installations in this landscape as part of the recreation of the lost 18th-century gardens of Hardwick Park.

We looked to extend interpretation beyond text on boards. The installations draw upon the theatrical nature of the original gardens and turned Hardwick Park into a story that unfolded across a landscape. Visitors could sit on the furniture and understand the landscape by imagining themselves in the scene, rather than by being told about the past.
