Public art commission for Upper Drive, Brighton & Hove

Deadline: October 1, 2009

9-11 Upper Drive is a newbuild development of four 3 storey and 4 storey blocks. The 25 apartments are mostly two bedroom flats, some with roof terraces and there is parking to the rear of the building.

The commission is for a series of pieces or interventions across the whole site which reflect and enhance the existing style and layout. Proposed pieces should vary in design but must echo or reference each other in order to create the sense of a 'trail' across the site, which includes the four blocks, as well as the parking, the grassed area to the rear of the buildings and the pavement area to the front.

Pieces should be no more than 2 metres high. Local residents will be included in choosing the final pieces, to ensure community involvement. We strongly suggest that you visit the site, as specific locations are open at this point.
