Blue Water Shopping Centre, Kent
Goddard and Gibbs, 1999
The two circular balustrades in the prestigious Bluewater Shopping Centre have an astronomical design. One is an exact replica of the moon’s surface, including the names and locations of each crater, and the other has longitude and latitude lines with star constellations and star signs.
Mark used hand cut stencil techniques with texture resist to create these intricate designs, which were then sandblasted to a slight edge. Itís a statement feature in a retail landmark.
