Open Spaces, Harbourside

Client: @t Bristol

Alec French, as part of Concept Planning Group, designed the extremely popular new public squares and spaces of Bristol’s Millennium project – destinations in their own right, as well as an appropriate setting for the new visitor attractions of @t Bristol.

Terracotta clad ventilation towers define the main square, with major public art in its dramatic water and light features. Extensive use is made of natural materials and there are places for contemplation as well as celebration.
