Eastside Projects are interested in changing the way that art is commissioned for new property developments in the UK. Through this project they plan to initiate a working method that involves artists at a much earlier stage of development, so they can be part of the design and planning process.
The projects that they have commissioned are taking place in Longford Park, a new housing development in Banbury. They include: The Artist House by Heather and Ivan Morison; a model village in the form of birdhouses by Richard Woods; a heated outdoor cast-iron sculpture by Nicolas Deshayes; and a participatory budgeting process by Rosalie Schweiker.
Europa created a graphic identity and posters to announce the public art project using a bespoke headline typeface.
