Project Description

Kaleidoscope

MB Arts master planned a public art scheme for Crest Nicholson in Cambridge. Andrew Rowe of Dar Design brought elements of the plan to fruition. Working with Cambridge University Press he designed railings inspired from the trays of letters originally used for printing. The Publishing house is the oldest in the world, granted letters patent in 1534 by Henry VIII. Helen Mort, Derbyshire Poet Laureate and award winning British poet wrote “Kaleidoscope” for the project, transcribed onto a fragmented artwork by Andrew Rowe for the Atrium.
Mosaic works by Emma Briggs can be seen in the water in the public waterfall at Kaleidoscope.
