University of Birmingham Arts & Science Commission display case

Design, fabrication and installation of a bespoke display case for showing maquettes outdoors over a long period of time. The case has an aluminium frame, glazed with tough polycarbonate. The roof is centrally draining (to protect against rain) and the case is installed with solar power to provide internal lighting at night. The case was installed in the University of Birmingham’s new Green Heart, a green oasis in the heart of campus. Four shortlisted artists for The University of Birmingham Arts & Science Commission showed models of their work in the display case, coinciding with a public vote to choose the winning sculpture design.
