Moundette, garden and DNA sculpture (12 feet wide, 18 feet high) with RNA planting and twists in aluminium. The Centre is housed in a nineteenth-century gatehoue to the university, converted by the architects Page and Park into a friendly spiral of space.
The aluminium coils unfold from a nucleus, a small moundette, and lean towards the seat. Lines of planting and stones, in shades of purple, pick up the spiral theme and curve around the mound as RNA which then turns into protein (pestle-and-mortar-shaped rocks). The protein built up is also represented by stacked river rocks. The plan shows these purple elements and the aluminium seats with their twisted waveforms.
