Central Station Metro
CENTRAL STATION METRO
ARTIST: ROSE NOLAN
CLIENT: WOODS BAGOT + LAING O'ROURKE
Creative Road was part of the design team for Sydney’s Central Station $955m for the Sydney Metro urban transformation, working with Laing O’Rourke and architecture firms Woods Bagot and John McAslan + Partners.
"All Alongside of Each Other” offers an open and affirmative text-based proposition to celebrate the daily passage of people as they move together through the portal of Sydney’s iconic Central Station.
The artwork – a large-scale red-and-white terrazzo floor drawing – begins with the formal red-and-white typology of the athletics track: parallel lines, circles and arcs. This strong graphic form operates as a marker of time and place as commuters actively follow parallel paths to reach their destination.
Seen on approach from the Eddy Avenue entrance, the polished stainless-steel letters of All Alongside of Each Other function as a sign, beckoning commuters into the grand Northern Concourse. Scaled up and given static form, these words are assigned new meaning within this busy urban environment. For more, watch here.
