I was asked by the Transportation Team at the Borough of Poole (now part of BCP Council), to lead on the project design and commissioning of creative interventions to contribute to the place-making offer of the new Townside highways scheme in the town of Poole. Artist Michael Condron was commissioned to create two gateway sculptural pieces – ‘Bottle Knot’ and ‘Birds’ – to ‘top and tail’ the scheme and Dallas Pierce Quintero were commissioned to create a trail of navigation way-markers and street furniture across the site, to encourage people from the town centre to the water’s edge of Holes Bay. The scheme was funded by the Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership. Both commissions were installed in early 2022.
