Artwork for Templars Green

Councillors were recently shown details of the proposed sculpture, bespoke bench and wayfinders which will be installed in the Templars Green development near Constance Road. The circular “Tree of Life” sculpture is made from stone with steel leaves and glass fruits and is 2-3m high. The stainless steel way finders will include a map and text, and the bespoke bench will be semi-circular with graphics on the back. Detailed diagrams can be found here
