Tropicana Lido redevelopment, Weston-super-Mare

Project: Consultancy

Project Details

Description

Working as the lead artist, in partnership with RCKa architects (London) on the redevelopment of Weston-super-Mare's Tropicana Lido. This is a £7m redevelopment of the lido, which has been there since 1937, funded by North Somerset Council. The redevelopment will bring the lido back in to use as, primarily, a multi-scale music venue. My role on the project is part-consultant, part-artist - to develop a programme of creative public engagement to run through the first stages of the redevelopment, and also to work closely with the architects in the design and realisation of a significant visual/sculptural element to be incorporated permanently into the redevelopment.
