13-01-2015 - Hilton Hotel, Terrace Mount, Bournemouth PUBLIC ART COMMISSION – shortlisted
Reporting to a designated Project Panel (named below), an experienced artist is sought to design a site-specific, innovative, timeless and high quality artwork (or series of artworks) for integration into the external public realm / landscaped areas of the scheme.
It is anticipated that the work produced in response to this brief will be largely focussed on the retaining wall at block B but will extend to the retaining walls in the vicinity of blocks A and C, as well as providing aesthetic treatment of the hotel’s associated landscaped areas and pathways.
The public art at the site is expected to serve as an aesthetic narrative for a pedestrian audience – as shown in the following images – and will be clearly visible from nearby highways.
