Public Art Commission: Milton Keynes

Deadline: June 13, 2014, 9:00 am

PHP Architects and Lewis (Ayr) Ltd are inviting expressions of interest from artists with experience of working in the public realm; to develop an artwork for the external courtyard and amenity space to a new office building in Milton Keynes.

The new building has a strong geometric design, partly informed by the site and part by the client’s involvement with the automotive industry. The design is a combination of sleek curves intersected by straight-lines to create a high quality, fluid form, where more of the detail is revealed the closer you get to the building.

A feature of the design is a external amenity court, with a mix of hard and soft landscaping and planting.  The Amenity court has been selected as the ideal location for the installation of Public Art.

The Commission has a budget of £100,000 fully inclusive of artist fees, design development, fabrication, enabling/groundwork and installation

Milton Keynes Council Arts Team are assisting with the commissioning process, for full details of the brief and information on how to make an expression of interest please email: [email protected] or download the full brief below.
