Sculptures at Greenham Business Park

Gudrun Nielsen with ChangesGreenham Trust has invested in several high profile sculptures, all produced by some of the world’s most renowned sculptors, to make the business park more attractive for tenants, staff and visitors. Changes - the winning design of Greenham Common Trust’s international sculpture competition can be found next to the Venture West building on the business park. Created by Icelandic sculptor Gudrun Nielsen, Changes represents the transformation of the Greenham Common from a military and nuclear airbase back to common land and the creation of an award winning sustainable business park which creates a charitable income for the local community.

 

 

 

Broken Symmetry by Michael KennyBroken Symmetry – The second winner of the international sculpture competition commissioned by the Trust was internationally acclaimed sculptor, the late Michael Kenny. His work, which frames the entrance to the park’s Enterprise Centre, a hub for local start up companies which fosters innovation, is evocative of the metamorphosis that has been undertaken at Greenham Common. Sadly Michael Kenny did not live to see this, his last sculpture, erected but his friend, Beatles drummer Ringo Starr, officially unveiled the work in 2000.
