Public Art | Brookfield Place Tower 2
Client: Brookfield Multiplex
Year: 2014 – 2015
Artist: Ned Kahn
FORM was engaged by Brookfield as the art consultant for Brookfield Place Tower 2, after successfully developing and delivering the art strategy for Tower 1 in 2012. American environmental artist and sculptor Ned Kahn was commissioned by Brookfield for this opportunity. The installation of his work, Feather Arbour, took place in August 2015, with the site opened to the public at the end of 2015.
FORM’s Public Art stream draws on research and strategic thinking in order to help facilitate creativity in our urban environment. Our team of architects, art consultants, curators, writers, and place strategists actively seek out projects that contribute meaningfully to the place where they are installed. Working collaboratively with artists, architects, fabricators, government, and the private sector allows FORM to offer a full service approach to public art commissions. Furthermore, our focus on stakeholder engagement, creative development and strategy, curation, design, fabrication, installation, and ongoing programming, allows us to actively encourage and assist first-time applicants, ensuring that art in Western Australia’s public spaces is as diverse as possible.
