Spirit of Kings

Designer: Liz Middleton 

A design completed during our time at Packman Lucas, Spirit of Kings is an art installation designed for King High School by sculpture artist Liz Middleton. The design is for a continuous steel hollow section curved into shape by specialist fabricators abroad. The work required careful consideration of the swaying under lateral loadings but also the potential unconventional loadings which may arise from school children using the piece as a climbing frame. The footings had to be designed within the heavily congested ground area in front of the main entrance. 

The expert fabrication by a specialist based in Italy resulted in a flawless free-flowing circular steel hollow section, perfectly concordants with the artist's vision.
