Unbalanced Bench

Malet Lambert, Hull

Caithness stone.

Seating sculpture at Malet Lambert School.

The work includes the re-ordering of internal courtyard area - the design of 3 concrete ‘sit’ walls that delineate areas for different kinds of activity and aid pedestrian movement between different parts of the school. The walls (marked in blue on the plan) also accommodate differing ground levels in the space. 'Unbalanced Bench' and 'Talking Point' are two sculptural seating elements that facilitate converstation and climbing - the two activities highlighted as the students main leisure activities.
