Current Project

A Contemporary Art Commission for the Station Square

Blackwall Reach Development, London

The regeneration of Blackwall Reach will transform a key area of Tower Hamlets adjacent to the Blackwall Tunnel, replacing 252 homes with over 1500 new homes, commercial premises, new community facilities, an extended school and a new mosque as well as improved public realm and linkages to the DLR.

This is a significant commission for the Blackwall Reach Development. Just in the way that the new buildings and the landscaped areas surrounding them will provide residential, community and commercial facilities with strong design qualities, so the artist’s contribution will enhance the sense of place and reinforce the development’s overall ambitions.

Research phase early 2018, to be completed 2019
