Wimpole Estate, NEON

on the picturesque grounds of the wimpole estate in cambridgeshire, london-based design studio NEON has installed a series of structures that frame views of the picturesque landscape. the artwork ‘scene: a new way of looking’ pays homage to english landscape architect capability brown, and celebrates the 300th anniversary of his birth. NEON has created nine, three meter high structures — a hybrid of an easel and viewing glass — to encourage visitors to explore the capability brown-designed setting at wimpole. the proposed journey around the estate follows in the footsteps of amabel, a member of the 18th century yorke family who made the new parkland at wimpole the subject of her art.
