SCREENING AND DISCUSSION

Loudoun – a film about Landscape Design in Scotland around 1700 (37 mins), with short talk by producer/director Margaret Stewart

Margaret Stewart is Honorary Secretary of FEUVA and a Lecturer in Architectural History at the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture.

Loudoun is a documentary film by staff, students and recent graduates of Edinburgh College of Art. It is about the origins of landscape design in Scotland around 1700.

It begins by telling the true story of how two boys in 1690 find a way to commemorate their dead parents by designing a garden. The film was shot at Lennoxlove Castle in East Lothian, and at various outdoor locations. The film illustrates a great but little-known national heritage of vast formal designed landscapes in Scotland around 1700. These were modelled on the great park at the Palace of Versailles.

The film demonstrates the wide-ranging talents of students and staff at Edinburgh College of Art – it includes animations, live action scenes, drone footage of landscapes and specially recorded music.
