Cultural Strategies

Our art strategies embed the arts and culture at the heart of urban regeneration and property development, contributing to authentic place making and distinctive communities.

We see the public realm as a platform for culture in its widest sense and we create innovative and internationally recognised models for contemporary public art programmes. Through close consultation with local stakeholders, institutions and organisations, we develop strategies that explore how public art can play a role in programming the public realm and supporting local cultural ecologies. Increasingly this is what local authorities, planners and developers are looking for, art programmes that have integrity and impact.

Our public art programmes are strategically developed through creative responses to the physical, social and historical context – a layered range of interventions across temporary, permanent and socially engaged practice – public art that is about and for its public.

Whether designing the Qatar Public Realm Guidelines for Ashghal, creating the University of Cambridge’s 2012 – 2024 public art strategy or contributing to the cultural infrastructure of the Olympic Park for London 2012 – our work is multifaceted, intelligent and visionary.
