Pennine panopticons prosper

Among the group revealed were 'The Singing Ringing Tree' in Burnley (top) by Tonkin Liu Architects and 'Neoscape' in the Ribble Valley (above) by artist Nayan Kulkarni. The project is supported by East Lancashire Partnership and funded by the Northwest Regional Development Agency.
