Aga Khan Islamic Gardens and Jellicoe Gardens: Date in March 2024 to be confirmed
The eight contemporary Islamic-style gardens in the Aga Khan Centre, Kings Cross, London, range from contemplative courtyards inspired by Andalusia, loggias evoking the Middle East, to rooftop spaces echoing designs from South and Central Asia.
The nearby Jellicoe Gardens designed by Tom Stewart-Smith, were based on the C16 Bagh-e-Fin in Iran, and exhibit pools, an open pavilion, rills and soft scented meadow planting. The gardens pay tribute to the architect and garden designer Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe who was a founding member of the Landscape Institute.
