View of sculpture in West Courtyard
Perspex acrylic has been used to produce two design-led sculptures at a community health centre in Scotland.
The two vertical totems, located in external courtyards at Kilsyth Health Centre in North Lanarkshire, feature colourful overlapping panels fabricated from Perspex acrylic sheet.
An assortment of 'Perspex Solid, Translucent and Transparent colours were chosen by the designers of the totems, Civic Architects, who said the colours “mimic the coded, specific patterns of our DNA profiles as individuals within a community.”
CAD drawings designed by Civic Architects provided fabricators, QD Plastics, with a variety of messages to be CNC cut into the materials linking the sculpture to local places and thoughts. The vertical structures relate to the architecture of the courtyards and are designed to encourage visitors to “look into the sky for contemplation and reflect changing emotions.”
