The Dysart Artworks project is designed by City Design in collaboration with: Donald Urquhart, Alec Finlay, Tom Clarke, Ken Cockburn and Studio LR. It was an 18 month long collaboration between landscape architects, artists, poets, the local authority and the local community to create a series of new artworks and public spaces linked by the Fife Coastal Path within Dysart.
It is one of a number of projects intended to contribute to positive change in the town. Each work draws its inspiration from the coastal landscape and the specific site characteristics. Rather than clutter the town and coast line with ‘object sculptures’ each artwork acts as a device to view familiar aspects of the landscape and the town in new ways.

New Lanark Roof Garden
Douglas Coltart of Viridarium, an award-winning garden designer and landscape architect, was chosen to design the New Lanark roof garden. From the first moment he saw the roof-space, which extends to around 900 square metres, Douglas recognised that this commission presented a unique challenge and a wonderful opportunity. He began by sketching out rough proposals and ideas about how the garden could be developed, and these were gradually refined in discussion with New Lanark Conservation Trust.
