Ancient and historical trees are geolocated and people can find them and listen to the Love poems dedicated to them. The gardens around Tate Modern were designed by the leading Swiss landscape architect Dieter Kienast (1945-1998) and where completed in time for Tate Modern’s opening in 2000. His landscape designs have a simple lyrical quality. By reducing his designs to a few essential elements and principles, Kienast plays with opposing factors such as the natural and the artificial, order and chaos.
