PublicArt Works developed a Public Art Plan which fully integrated art into the above and below ground Metro station environments especially in the critical public domain areas, embracing 6 stations as well as the proposed Rozelle Depot. The public domain of the stations were critical sites where art was attuned to the genius loci of the neighbourhood context. Subsurface artworks at entry points, concourse walls and floors, caverns and platforms addressed the passenger journey and other functional roles such as station identity & wayfinding, enhancing, amenity and safety.
Our strategy advised Met One on innovative approaches to creative outcomes for permanent and temporary public artworks including train interiors, construction hoardings and display screens. Branding and marketing were also a key focus of the strategy with opportunities specifically generated by the art program, which was designed to make a significant contribution to the Metro’s ‘wow’ factor.
