This lecture will also lay out Adam’s contribution to European cultural heritage.

This lecture looks backwards to investigate how Adam’s garden designs related to contemporary and earlier fashions in Scottish and English garden design.

Humm investigates how Adam’s garden designs related to contemporary and earlier fashions in Scotland and England, and features estates Newliston and Blair Crambeth.

The lecture bases some of its insight from the work by Professor Alan Tait and his book, “The Landscape Garden in Scotland.”

Professor Alan Tait explored how William Adam’s garden designs looked forward to the picturesque informality of the mid- and late-18th-century landscape garden.

Speaker Louisa Humm studied History of Art at St Andrews University and worked for Historic Environment Scotland initially in their listing team. Now as a Senior Casework Officer, Humm responsible for listed building consent work in Glasgow and other parts of South-West Scotland.
