Alexander House

Project status: Current


Work with local businesses to develop large scale public art piece.

Project Overview

Following up on articles in Swindon Link magazine, the owners of Alexander House on Fleming Way (Lenta Business Centres) decided that it would be good to have a public art piece created on the back of their huge office block. Forward Swindon created a public competition, with Link, and asked the public to submit ideas. A fantastic array of images came forward and winners were selected. Inspired by the entries, Lenta and Forward Swindon are currently trying to develop a project that will be feasible, cost effective and durable.
