creating precision light and control


Delivered as part of the Cathedral Green Regeneration, Cascade is an idea of water represented in granite and light.
The 600 square metre installation traces the footprint of the former mill race for the adjacent silk mill. The design was developed from an image of water into 11 tones, 9 of which translated into a selection of stones including granites, basalts and porphyry. The idea of reflection on water is manifested in one hundred iridescent handmade blocks and fifty dynamic in-ground lights.
The Cathedral Green Project received a Prime Minister’s Award in 2009.
