Rolling sculpture programme to bring life to Edinburgh Park
December 11 2020
Parabola have detailed their intent to erect a further pair of sculptures to help define the Southern Phase masterplan at Edinburgh Park.
Sited at Lochside Crescent near the tram viaduct and a central garden square the temporary pieces of public realm will join four other works as the centrepiece of a rotating display of public art across the site.
First in line to be installed is a 10m outstretched arm called Reach for the Stars designed by Kenneth Armitage in 2002. This will be joined later in the year by The Advocate, a 2013 piece by Bruce Beasley.
Installation will take place next year in tandem with phase 1 works.
Parabola is awaiting assessment of a residential-led masterplan which will evolve the business park into a place to live as well as work with 1,700 planned homes.

What good do these 'sculptures' do? Just lumps of material 'crafted' by someone with an ego as large as a house with a need to show off.
Waste of the worlds valuable resources, time, money and effort.
Better to invite along a few of New York's finest graffiti boys with spray cans to 'tag' a colourful makeover onto the vast spans of grey concrete already in existence.
