Dreaming Up a Prehistoric Eden



There’s something about dinosaurs, right? Maybe it’s a lingering echo from the ’90s, a ‘Jurassic Park’ nostalgia that clings to the corners of our collective consciousness. Or maybe it’s the sheer awe that these colossal creatures inspire, remnants of a prehistoric past we can only imagine.

As a kid, natural history museums were my arenas of wonder, where the bones of these ancient giants pieced together stories of an Earth long before us.

Fast forward to today, and my fascination hasn’t waned. What if I could bring these titans back to life? Not in flesh and bone, but as living sculptures, towering and majestic. I think of Danish landscape architect Carl Theodor Sørensen, known for his innovative playgrounds, and I wonder: what would Sørensen’s touch look like on this dinosaurian commission? It’s a mammoth undertaking, the kind that stirs the soul.

I could spend lifetimes resurrecting these tree dinosaurs at scale, bending nature into the shape of the ancient. But! Then, there’s the future—bright with the promise of XR experiences, or whatever tech comes next, allowing us to dive into digital worlds more immersive than ever. In these virtual realms, my prehistoric garden thrives, a place where history breathes new life, and where every visitor can walk with dinosaurs.

It’s not just an ode to a childhood fascination—it’s a vision of what’s to come, blending the lines between history, nature, and the boundless realms of imagination.
