Event description

Description

The Dane, Preben Jakobsen (1934 – 2012) was an influential modernist landscape architect who spent his professional working life in the UK. He trained in horticulture at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew in the 1950s, and later landscape architecture at the Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.

Jakobsen moved to the UK in 1961 to work for Eric Lyons at Span where he started to make his mark as an excellent designer and plantsman, bringing a rare and welcome Danish design approach to 1960s Britain.

Join Landscape Architect, landscape historian and horticulturist, Karen Fitzsimon to find out more about one of landscape’s most overlooked talents.
