Jellicoe was born in Chelsea. He studied at the Architectural Association in London in 1919 and won a Rome Scholarship in 1923 which enabled him to research his first book Italian Gardens of the Renaissance with Jock Shepherd. This pioneering study did much to re-awaken interest in this great period of landscape design and through its copious photographic illustrations publicised the then perilously decayed condition of many of the gardens. In 1929 he was a founding member of the Landscape Institute and from 1939-49 he was its President. In 1948 he became the founding President of the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA). From 1954-68 he was a member of Royal Fine Art Commission and from 1967-74 a Trustee of Tate Gallery. He died in 1996, the bestknown English landscape architect of his generation.(wikipedia) Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe a biography from the Garden and Landscape Guide Born - Died : 1900 - 1996 Geoffrey Alan Jellicoe was an English architect, town planner, landscape architect and garden designer. His strongest interest was in landscape and garden design. Geoffrey Jellicoe studied at the Architectural Association in London and later became its principal. His book on Italian Gardens of the Renaissance (1925) led to a commission for the design of the garden at Ditchley Park. Two of Geoffrey Jellicoe's favourite projects are freely open to the public: The Water Garden in Hemel Hempsted and the Kennedy Memorial in Runnymede. Geoffrey Jellicoe's most ambitious English garden design was for Sutton Place in Surrey. In the longer term it is likely that Jellicoe, like Repton, will be valued even more as a landscape theorist than as a landscape designer. Jellicoe had a vast knowledge of landscape design history, as demonstrated by his book on The Landscape of Man, and was keenly interested in applying this knowledge to landscape design projects, as explained in his 3 volume Studies in Landscape Design and in his Guelph Lectures on Landscape Design. Educated in same school as Calvert Vaux (London's Architectural Association), Jellicoe was one of the first to appreciate the shortcomings of a Modernist design approach and arguably became the first Postmodern landscape and garden designer. His friendship with a number of leading modern artists led to an interest in Carl Jung and the the role of the subconscious in landscape design [see Geoffrey Jellicoe Edited by Sheila Harvey LDT monographs, 1998, ISBN 0 9518377].( http://www.gardenvisit.com/biography/sir_geoffrey_jellicoe) Gardenvisit Editorial Sutton Place Garden A Tudor house with a great twentieth century garden, designed by Geoffrey Jellicoe for Stanley J Seeger. With his developing interest in Jung, Jellicoe saw the design as an allegory of human evolution, with creation, life and aspiration. He made a Paradise Garden, a Moss Garden, a Music Garden a Surrealist Garden and one of the finest features in any English garden: the Nicholson Wall. The Sutton Place garden has since changed hands and is being further developed. There is a new Ellipse Garden and an orchard (on the slope where Jellicoe intended a cascade).(fig. 1) Kennedy Memorial Gardenvisit Editorial A memorial garden, for President John F Kennedy. The acre of land on which it is set, a gift to America, overlooks the valley in which Magna Carta was signed. Jellicoe designed a flight of steps, rising through the woods to reach a glade in which the memorial stone is set. It draws upon The Pilgrim's Progress, Bunyan's allegory of life as a journey. This was a key project in the development of Jellicoe's view on the role of the subconscious in landscape design.(fig. 2,3,4)
