Urban&Public was commissioned to undertake concept design, documentation and contract administration for the a new graphic gateway and shade structures for the Bowden Urban Village at Plant 4.
The temporary gateway installation has a five year life span and is located on a vacant lot that fronts Park Terrace and overlooks the Adelaide Parklands. A collection of signs marks the entry to the Plant 4 Bowden site, the former home of Clipsal. The signs come alive at night, and will become a changing canvas for the site.
The preferred concept references road sign typologies to create ‘wayfinding’ elements that can be utilised as an updatable gallery for artists and/or promotions. Graphics to the light boxes can be assembled in different ways to create a visual and dynamic entry to the Village both day and night.
U&P also developed concepts for the lasercut sunshade element over the playground and waterplay, using graphics found on the previous industrial site.
