Redevelopment of St John’s Precinct in Blackpool, Winning competition entry and commission
The proposal introduces the shared-space principle creating a space for events in addition to seating, soft landscaping and a water feature. The focal point of the scheme is the New Horizon sculpture, a spiral-like stainless steel work with a mirrored surface capturing the light from the sky and sea. The large scale sculpture is seen as an attractor to draw in visitors from the seaside to the city centre, strengthening the local community. In collaboration with Leit-werk.
