With CBR Downer’s win to build the Parramatta Light Rail, we are further developing our pre-bid public art strategy with Cox Richardson and Context Landscape Architects.
Our vision is that of a passenger art experience that links and integrates all sections of light rail line with art that communicates rich and diverse place meanings, connecting passengers to their neighbourhoods and to each other.
It is conceived as a ribbon of colour and light, like a beaded necklace of artworks threading the line and the stops together. Thus station ‘beads’ are complemented with integrated creative gestures along corridors. A diversity of artwork forms is evident, from the hi-tech, digital and AR realms to more traditional tactile, crafted place makers.
