FLEXIBLE & PLAYFUL INTERVENTION
ARTISTS: CG X SAME WILLIAMS
CLIENT: COVENTRY CITY COUNCIL
LOCATION: COVENTRY BUS INTERCHANGE
Initially, a brief for a series of parklet planters to be installed on the platforms of Grade II listed Coventry Train Station, the CG x Sam Williams Studio Parklet is inspired by the modernist and brutalist architecture of the city.
Due to the complex nature of permissions in a live rail station, and a changing client brief, itwas decided that the parklet would be much more suited to a location in the new businterchange outside of the newly developed train station. We then adjusted the design brief tobe more flexible and playful, introducing pink accent details which reflect the aesthetic of theother recent public art commissions in the city centre that Creative Giant was involved incommissioning in the lead-up to Coventry City of Culture 2021.
