Opportunity for artists at SA1 Development, Swansea. The City and County of Swansea and the Welsh Assembly Government wish to appoint two artists to design a series of public art installations along a section of the Riverside Walkway as part of the SA1 development. The development of SA1 aims to reconnect the Prince of Wales Dock to the rest of the city. The vision for SA1 is for it to be a ‘lively, attractive waterside destination, fostering a high standard of urban design and architecture with an emphasis on innovation, modernity and flexibility.’ The River Tawe is the western boundary of the SA1 development and two new bridges now connect the new development with the city centre. The section of walkway from the Sail Bridge to Trafalgar Bridge is a popular route. The walkway also runs adjacent to Ice House Square which is soon to have an integrated and interactive public art lighting scheme. It is envisaged that one artist will work primarily with lettering, researching texts to use within new work or generating new text through workshops. The second artist could work in a variety of media including stone, metal, ceramic, glass, light or other materials suitable in this harsh marine environment. Read full listing…
The City and County of Swansea and the Welsh Assembly Government wish to appoint a lighting artist, or team of artists, to design a public space and lighting scheme for Ice House Square, a key arrival site in the SA1 development. The square is overlooked by two developments and has already been planted with a formal grid of 16 boxed trees but remains unpaved with temporary finishes to the adjacent footway. It is envisaged that an artist working primarily with light will animate the space and create a dynamic and integrated artwork, which would also make the most of the trees as three-dimensional structures. The artist will also be expected to consider the paving/surface design of the area around the trees. Read full listing…
Weymouth and Portland Council wish to appoint an artist to collaborate with landscape architects on the enhancement of the Esplanade. This is one of several major projects being undertaken in Weymouth and Portland in preparation for hosting the sailing events for the 2012 Games.
The artist will become part of the Landscape design team which will also collaborate closely with other design teams working on the Esplanade. The artist's role will be to bring their own conceptual thinking to the project as well as their material knowledge and formal design skills. This design team approach is intended to create a distinctive and coherent scheme that promotes Weymouth as a resort for the 21st century as well as a town with a well-known history.
The artist/landscape architect collaboration may lead to a number of possible outcomes. Following the artist's input into the conceptual framework and design of the Esplanade enhancements, there is likely to be a detailed design phase for the artist on particular elements of the scheme.
