North Sydney Entry

Missing Corners by Daniel Templeman


Missing Corners is a striking new entrance statement for North Sydney, a prominent painted metal and timber sculpture which welcomes passing commuters coming off the Cahill Expressway and Sydney Harbour Bridge. With the soft surface of the timber panels and the open triangular structures, pedestrians are encouraged to take time out, enter, sit and contemplate the work. The simple aesthetic references the interior furnishings of the former church, whilst sitting in contrast to the surrounding buildings of glass and steel.

Creative Road managed an open EOI process, oversaw artist selection and project managed artwork delivery through to installation.

“Where the triangles meet the corners are missing, this creates a singular form that runs in a continuum. Large metal beams are tensioned over many meters, imbuing the artwork with a sense of mystery or impossibility.” Daniel Templeman
