Regency Benches, Pimlico, London, UK
In a series of workshops with a sculptor, a painter and a poet, year 6 students
from Millbank Primary School were encouraged to create their own responses to the site by looking at its historical and social
context. During the project the students selected their favourite sketches to be translated by a laser scribe directly onto the
forms of the benches.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Regency benches are a series of three stainless steel benches installed in a park behind the Tate Britain Gallery in London.
The project was a collaboration between myself and year 6 students from the nearby Millbank School. The forms were
created as a response to the undulating nature of the site, and consist of a series of steel triangles that reflect the changing
light and atmospheric conditions in the park
