norwich memorial gardens

commissioner: norwich city council

artist: paul de monchaux

Paul de Monchaux was commissioned by Norwich City Council as part of improvements to Norwich Memorail Gardens which included a listed memorial and associated works by Lutyens.

Paul de Monchaux worked closely with the landscape architects for the scheme which resulted in improved and more accessible public gardens. This included his sculpture 'Breath', a contemporary memorial, which faces the city square. Sited behind the original Lutyens memorial, it creates a dynamic new facet to this much loved area of the public realm.
