03 Jul The Ipswich Flood Barrier artwork project needs you
by Dan Bryans
The project will see bespoke creations installed at 2 locations – across the 3 doors of the barrier’s control building, and within a circular space on the West Bank of the New Cut.
The successful designs, which should have a maritime and/or Ipswich theme, must be able to withstand any potential vandalism and sufficiently durable to have a lifespan of 25 years.
The commissioned art work is expected to be installed by early next year.
The deadline for submissions is 28 July.
Work on the £58 million Ipswich Flood barrier scheme is already well under way and is due to be completed in 2018.
