Multi-coloured multi-story dazzles Worthing
A seafront carpark in Worthing, UK has been transformed with bright, bold SUPERGRAPHICS
After the success of 2015’s “Mirrored Beach Hut” and 2016’s “Doorways”, ECE Architecture and Creative Forager are back for summer 2017 with a new installation in Worthing, West Sussex.
On July 6th 2017, in collaboration with Adur & Worthing Councils and acclaimed street artist, Ricky Also, this dynamic team dramatically transformed the Grafton car park, on Worthing sea front using bright, bold SUPERGRAPHICS.
This new beach front installation has taken a grey car park in Worthing, a site that Worthing and Adur council would like to promote for future regeneration, and painted it with an incredible large scale pattern, graphics and the words ‘RIGHT NOW’ to transform it and the public’s perception of it. The phrase ‘RIGHT NOW’ focuses on the current nature of the installation, but in a creative twist it is also an anagram of WORTHING. The inspiration behind the dazzling riot of bright colour and bold pattern is the stripy deckchairs and colourful items that can be bought along the seafront promenade.
ECE Architecture, Managing Director, Stuart Eatock comments:
“The Mirrored Beach Hut re-imagined a seaside icon. Doorsways took a common architectural element and re-imagined it out of context and out of scale. Right now SUPERGRAPHICS is about re-imagining a car park as a canvas, creating a new landmark for Worthing”
The installation signifies the potential creative regeneration of this area, through a design that represents the powerful creative energy that exists in Worthing Right Now.
Adur and Worthing Chief Executive, Alex Bailey said:
“We wanted to support a piece of public art that represents the forward thinking, creative culture that exists here. It’s the shape of things to come.”
