London-based architects Duggan Morris have been chosen to build a moveable structure on the Leeds-Liverpool canal in the Housing Market Renewal area of Sefton.
The winning design is based on a canoeist's profile in motion. The structure will be used for 'community leisure resources' according to the New Heartlands housing agency which commissioned the piece.
New Heartlands, together with the Liverpool Biennial and the Arts Council England (North West), local authorities and housing associations, will commission three public art structures across Merseyside's HMR areas of Liverpool, Sefton and Wirral. Sefton's will be the first project to be completed.
