TILT was commissioned to detail the design, construct and install the artwork ‘The New City Beautiful II’ by artist Nuha Saad. TILT worked closely with Nuha to ensure the artistic objectives were met whilst balancing the durability and materiality concerns of elements designed for the public domain.
This sculpture is the second public artwork for one large development site in Rosebery, supported by City of Sydney and funded by the Meriton Group. The first artwork The New City Beautiful I mural is located at Rothschild Avenue, Rosebery and was installed in 2017. The two artworks are sympathetic both conceptually and aesthetically to each other.
The New City Beautiful II is a free-standing sculpture that references the inherent historic features of local, long-gone architectural structures. Meanwhile, the work introduces a contemporary art aesthetic to the newly formed streetscape, further reiterating the future and lives to be lived there.
