Cambourne is the largest new settlement in the South Cambridgeshire district, developed on a green field site nine miles west of Cambridge and designed on the principles of sustainable living and working.
We worked with Cambourne Business Park Ltd and Wysing Arts to appoint Taslim Martin to develop and deliver a Work for an area of new landscaping within the Park.
Taslim Martin worked in close consultation with Aukett Europe, the architects and landscape designers for the scheme, as well as engaging with the business park community and local residents to create a new permanent sculpture for the site. 'Icosahedral' is a 10ft spherical structure made from marine grade stainless steel that provides a striking physical and contemporary presence for the park.
'Icosahedral' was commissioned by Cambourne Business Park Ltd and managed by Commissions East with funding from Arts & Business.
