Art and integrated artistic design is integral to creating unique identifiable relevant public spaces.
People identify with place and relate to the history of a place. An artist or designer identifies the relationship of a place or built element, form or landscape character and communicates that relationship in a built form.
Most Local Councils have and art policy or a commitment to providing public art for community benefit.
Clever design is not simply placing stand alone sculptures or images but are integrated into the design for the space or built form.How well that is done is the key to the success of the project.
