CABE

Centrepiece for the 'Climate Change Festival' in Birmingham in collaboration with Block Architecture. The festival was organised by Birmingham City Council and the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment (CABE) to promote awareness of climate change and low carbon initiatives.

 

CABE provided an interesting and wide ranging brief to create a large-scale piece of public art that would be beguiling and curious, engaging, social and fun. The competition winning design utilised an 'Up-cycled' 95ft pylon. The pylon was installed in the city centre on cornfield base, as if it had been cut out if it’s habitual environment and placed incongruously in an urban setting. After the festival the pylon was returned to 'duty'.
