Creative Road developed an integrated art strategy for a 28-story commercial building within Digital Harbour Melbourne Docklands. In collaboration with Architects Woods Bagot and Landscape Architects GBLA and in line with Development Victoria’s integrated art guidelines, the aim was to specify artworks which flow from external spaces through to the interiors of the building.

Perth artist Stuart Green is being commissioned to create two related sculptural works inspired by the industrial and rail history of the site.

Client:                   Poly Australia

Location:              Melbourne Docklands

“The site was formerly cut through with branching rail lines linking the docks to the rest of the State. The new artwork draws on the parallel character of these travel lines cutting through space to create a tall looped path in heavy metal and segmented colour. The resulting sculpture is massive but silent, with the curves having a bodily muscular sense as the eye follows the form through its swoop and tangle with the enveloping space.”
