Standing proud on the banks of the Swan River adjacent to Perth’s new 60,000 seat stadium and internationally renowned Crown Perth resort, the Belmont Park re-development will be at the heart of Perth’s entertainment and sporting precinct. Strategically located just minutes from the Perth CBD, Domestic and International Airports and close to Victoria Park’s thriving residential community, the area is home to the city’s second largest train station. Burswood City is a $3.8 Billion project over 38 hectares.
Apparatus were engaged to work on a consultant team assisting with the delivery of the Stage 1 Place Activation Plan. This was developed by PLACE Laboratory in collaboration with Apparatus (Public Art +Interpretation Plan), Village Well (Community Development Plan), Emerge (Landscape Plan), and Brain and Poulter (Retail Strategy).
Apparatus were also engaged to develop a series of public art planning documents: a Public Art Framework, (covering the whole of the development area), Public Art Masterplan (outlining an approach for Precinct D), and the Public Art Plan for Stage 1. These documents identified the opportunity within the greater project, and then detailed recommended artworks, including location, budget, procurement method and artist scope. These documents were all in alignment with the Town of Victoria Park’s Percent for Art Policy and included engagement with many stakeholders and formed a part of the client’s formal planning process with the local authority.
Apparatus are contracted to implement the Public Art Plan and Interpretation Plan.
