The city of Port Hedland recently commissioned artists to deliver a creative children’s play area for an extension to its Cemetery Beach Park along the foreshore. UAP with FORM facilitated skills development workshops with artists from the Spinifex Hill Artists collective which delivered the three commissioned concepts for integration into the park.
Public Art Review's 45th issue, 'Parks and Recreation' includes a feature article on playscapes, focussed on growing creativity when it comes to the design of play areas. Featured amongst the list of international examples is UAP's Redfern Park project Lotus Cross, created by Artist Fiona Foley.
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.
