Hackney Council Bespoke railings commission

The London Borough of Hackney are seeking expressions of interest from artists and collaborations to undertake an exciting piece of work to design bespoke railings and gates for a proposed housing development in Hackney, being led by Hackney Council, and designed by architects Child Graddon Lewis (CGL). This commission provides the opportunity for artists to use their creative skills to enhance the local townscape and provide an enduring installation for this prominent location. The successful artist will need to work with CGL to create an attractive and practical design for the ground level railings of the proposed medium sized, mixed tenure development in Hoxton, playing on and enhancing the architecture of the new building. The artist will need to have experience of working with relevant materials, metal work and/or product design, as the design will need to be manufactured for use; the railings will need to be produced for under £150/sqm. For: Open to all but Artists/collaborations who live and/or work in Hackney are encouraged to apply Deadline for notification of interest: Midday 30th November 2012  Full info at:  http://www.artistcompetitions.co.uk/2012/11/hackney-council-railings-commission/
