Brief Description

Works value circa £375,000 to 400,000 ex vat including fees. This commission is the main permanent integrated artist commission within the scheme. The selected artist will be commissioned to work with the design team, in particular the landscape architect Novell Tullett, to develop an integrated intervention into the edging details of two sides of the square. The work will be an informal identifier and boundary treatment in and out of this side of the square, setting the tone for the visitor’s experience of the square. Works value circa £200,000 -275,000 ex vat including fees. This commission is for a striking lighting design and activation that will bring to life and reshape the Kings Square at night. It is expected that an innovative approach will focus on activity within the Kings Square and create a dramatic and flexible platform on which other creative activity can take place.
