The nine-story, 5000m² kinetic facade of the Brisbane Airport Domestic car park, formally opened in August, is the result of a three-way collaboration between American artist Ned Kahn, Urban Art Projects (UAP) and Hassell (Sydney).
UAP and FORM were invited by LandCorp to develop an overarching Art Strategy for LandCorp’s Baynton West housing development in Karratha, Western Australia. Baynton West is set to become a benchmark public art project, placing it at the forefront of residential and community development in the Pilbara. In partnership, UAP and FORM combined the strengths and experience of both organisations with that of an established group of artists in the local community – Roebourne Art Group (RAG). UAP and FORM facilitated a workshop process which included a series of tailored sessions with participating RAG artists, which provided a unique platform for the professional development of the RAG artists and for the selection of artists and artworks for the project. Artists whose concepts were chosen for the project include Wendy Warrie, Janine Samson, Gavin Snook and Violet Samson, with a number of their works currently in progress in UAP's Brisbane foundry.
Located in the heart of Sydney's CBD, The Residence Hyde Park is the result of a refurbishment of the former NSW Police Headquarters into a prestigious residential precinct. UAP were comissioned by Hutchinsons Builders for their clients Pamada, Galileo and AMP Capital Investments to manage the public art project in alignment with the city of Sydney Public Art policy. The Artist appointed was Sarah Robson, who created a piece titled ‘Calais Deviations’, designed to engage with the building, pedestrian viewers and the surrounding environment as well as existing historical monuments.
