Richard Lester Swain

Urban designer and public space artist Richard Lester Swain has won planning approval for a major landmark sculpture from Chesterfield Borough Council. The scheme will not only be the biggest piece of public art in the UK but also the world's largest operational, solar-driven timepiece. The Solar Pyramid's design incorporates three blades of steel, triangular in section, planted in an elliptical piazza 30m x 40m.
