Proposed sites/Areas of focus
Art on the island – on the approach to the Campus there is and island, in front of the reception area and opposite the bus shelters. This could be a sculptural installation, it should be imaginative and robust enough for a public space.
Around the Stannary and Heart working with the proposed configuration of the new ‘Social Space’ – this is the area around the new reception and canteen that has building plans to be for students to eat, meet, work and engage with social events.
A unified design for bike, bus and smoking shelters – there are existing shelters but it is felt that these could be improved and given a new creative thought and unity.
An open project, finding spaces for improvement – this offers the opportunity to recognise a missing element on the Campus. It could be a project that affects the whole campus like a lighting design or a space, which has a function that could be enhanced to improve the experience of the Campus.
