About the event

2018 is the bicentennial anniversary of the death of Humphry Repton, self-proclaimed successor to Capability Brown and the last great English landscape designer of the 18th century. In celebration, and as part of the Repton 200 festival taking place this year, RHS Libraries have collaborated with students from Writtle University College to take a fresh look at his gardening principles. The students, in their third year of study on Writtle’s Landscape Architecture and Garden Design courses, have had the opportunity to learn about Repton’s ideas and respond within their own public landscape design projects. This exhibition will display original materials from RHS Libraries collections alongside final project designs, each presented through the student’s own take on Repton’s famous ‘before and after’.
