‘Bricole di Venezia’

Client: Countryside Properties
Artists: Richard Layzell
Location and Date: Fortuna Park, Colchester. 2008
Winner of the Arts & Business Community Development Award 2009

Inspiration for the design came from the community’s associations with the location. The colours reference the Garrison through the camouflage design and the location of the former football stadium on the same road as the development – this recently having been relocated to North Colchester. The turned capitals acknowledge the areas farming heritage and the oak trees which line the road. Two columns are located within the local primary school to mark their involvement with the project and a business case study and evaluation document has been produced with Art & Business.
