VTB Capital Garden - Spirit of Cornwall

Designed by Stuart Charles Towner

The VTB Capital Garden - 'Spirit of Cornwall' is a unique creative collaboration consisting of a garden designer, architects, musicians, a composer and a sculptor.
Contemporary in style, the garden features a palette of subtropical and temperate plants, illustrating the unique microclimates found throughout Cornwall.
The metalwork reflects the sound wave pattern of the music, with its peak expressed by the garden pavilion - a space for composing and performing - designed by architectural practice Studio Evans Lane.
Water features represent the sea views from Hepworth's own garden, while the continuous circulation of water reinforces the musical motif nestled amongst the planting.

Designed by Stuart Charles Towner

'Spirit of Cornwall' is a multi-sensory experience inspired by the work of renowned British sculptor Barbara Hepworth and music composed by Leo Geyer
