Large 'kinetic' sculpture installed in refurbed Victoria offices

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK] Artist Conrad Shawcross has completed the installation of a large snowflake-like sculpture at a recently completed office revamp in Victoria, London

The artwork fills the ‘dead space’ within the foyer of Aukett Fitzroy Robinson and MoreySmith’s £155 million overhaul of Elsom, Pack & Roberts’ Ashdown House. MoreySmith collaborated with ArtSource, a company specialising in the installation of contemporary art, to find permanent pieces of artwork to populate these under-used areas.

The rotating sculpture by Shawcross was chosen for the Victoria Street entrance to the iconic 1970s building, now renamed 123 Victoria Street, which itself forms part of Land Securities’ £2 billion capital investment in the area (see AJ 24.10.2012).

The sculpture is described as ’a series of symmetrical fractal forms appearing to float through the space as it moves round’.
