The blinds are automated and respond according to the degree of insolation. They can be overridden and is why they appear permanently fully open on the upper levels facing the quay, which annoys me somewhat.

Poly Australia commissioning major piece of public art for its first Australian commercial building

Sue Williams
Jun 17, 2019

Australia is fast catching up to the US, Britain and the rest of Europe in its embrace of public art around commercial real estate as a way of inspiring the users of buildings and passers-by, and making our cities more liveable, experts say.

“Twenty years ago in Australia, it was seen as a thorn in the side of cities and developers as it became part of the requirements for many new projects,” said art curator Owen Craven, principal of global public art studio UAP.

“We had no tradition of public art as we never had the same kind of long history and, for a country largely made up of convicts, it wasn’t a priority.

But now it’s much more appreciated as a way of telling a narrative and enhancing the public domain, and as something that people can connect to and engage with.

“Art can become the soul of a place, and public art starts to translate and convert space into place.”

One of Australia’s newest public artworks is set to be a piece now being commissioned by developer Poly Australia for the 15-metre-high glass space in the foyer of its Poly Centre, a 26-storey commercial building at 210 George Street, in Sydney, that’s soon to start construction.

This comes as one of the City of Sydney’s most high-profile councillors, Christine Forster, has called on developers to contribute more to the funding of public art in Sydney.

“It’s my view that rather than hitting the taxpayers in the pocket, we should be looking to the people that are investing in the built form of the city: the developers,” she told a forum on public art last week.

“We should be requiring them to invest in public art.”

Poly Australia’s first commercial project in the country was designed by Grimshaw Architects as the new gateway to Circular Quay – and as a result needed a momentous piece of public art, said Poly NSW executive director Simon Blount.

Three leading artists, Emmanuelle Moureaux from France, Pae White from the US and Australian Janet Laurence have been selected from a large field of suitable artists to submit concepts for consideration.

“The quadruple-height void will be very visible from George Street in its position by the corner of George and Dalley streets and, at street level, is an interface between public domain and private that tens of thousands of people walk past every day,” said Mr Blount.

“I would love a substantial 3D piece of art either hanging off the ceiling or coming off the floor that, when seen from a distance, you think, ‘Wow! How beautiful!’ But then it draws you in so you can appreciate its detail. I want it to be timeless, to create intrigue and to be something that people look at both day and night, with perhaps lighting used as well at night …”

It is hoped that the winning public artwork will create a great awareness of the building – due for completion in 2021 – make it distinctive and enjoyable for the commercial tenants, will appeal to visitors and the general public outside, will promote the artist who designs it, and will add to Sydney’s allure.
