‘Bransholme Seed Cloud’
The area around Bransholme has been farmed, cultivated, reclaimed & regenerated slowly over a period of 1000 years. In 1966 the green landscape of ditches & fields was to change dramatically & radically with the building of the new satellite town of Bransholme, now home to over 30,000 people.
The area is still rich in its bio-diversity. The streams, ditches, drains & dykes which dissect Bransholme & its surrounding land provide habitat for a diverse flora & fauna.
At the very heart of Bransholme stands the new Winifred Holtby Secondary and Tweendykes Special School.
This project was inspired by the locality and its rich history and topography. It was equally driven by the relationship which developed within the project team, which included both Head Teachers.
The artwork was digitally printed onto optically clear vinyl & applied to the curtain wall glazing, which spanned both school environments at Winifred Holtby & Tweendykes Schools. It was manufactured & installed by Artworks Solutions Ltd. The new Schools are part of a ‘Building Schools for the Future’ initiative.
Client: Esteem Consortium, Morgan Sindall & JM Architects with Art Consultant Andrew Knight.
