Steel sculpture designed by Jo Thompson winding along the River Derwent at RHS Chatsworth Flower Show
Embracing the majestic setting of Chatsworth House, Jo’s garden maximises the beautiful views and natural curves of the landscape and provides a spectacular contemporary viewpoint from which to enjoy ‘Capability’ Brown’s historic vistas.
Sited on the banks of the River Derwent, the scale of the garden reflects the grandeur of its setting combining contemporary industrial materials with naturalistic planting. Central to the design is an imposing contemporary sculpture crafted from reinforcing steel bars that sweep through the space, taking in the shape of the river before cantilevering dramatically out over the water. Here, it will hang suspended in mid air before sweeping back to the riverbank and spiralling into a circular enclosed building.
