Northumberlandia, Newcastle, England
2005-2012 (with Banks Group)
Landform as gateway, abstraction of movement and human form. Made of 1.5 million tonnes of earth, she will be 34 metres (112 feet) high and 400 metres (1,300 feet) long. The landform can be enjoyed in parts and within many different contexts including the distant landscape, the causeways, lakes, willow islands, and viewing pavilions.
