Bath event looks at landscape architect’s global impact

Capability Brown

The University of Bath is hosting a three-day conference this September on the global impact of Capability Brown.

‘Capability Brown: perception and response in a global context’ is organised by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and takes place at the university from 9–11 September. International experts will address recent research into Brown’s work and the adoption of his naturalistic landscape style across Europe, Russia, Australasia and America, as well as his enduring influence today.

The conference will include a tour of his recently restored landscape at Croome Court, and evening receptions at Prior Park valley garden and the Bath Assembly Rooms.

Tickets cost £340 (£275 for ICOMOS members) and can be booked online

The Capability Brown Festival, celebrating the 300th anniversary of the landscape architect’s birth, is organised by the Landscape Institute and continues throughout 2016. For more events, visit the festival website
