Broadbeach sculptural piece concept

Broadbeach sculpture piece concept

A project recommended from the Broadbeach Core Business Precinct Master Plan, the Broadbeach sculptural feature piece will be located in Victoria Park to reinforce the arrival point of the precinct. Centrally located in the precinct and being double sided, it will be visible to the west along the Light Rail Corridor, vehicles entering the precinct from the Gold Coast Highway and T E Peters Drive, as well as visible to the east to the pedestrians and park users.

Division 10 Councillor Paul Taylor, has requested City Place Making (CPM) to design a piece that is bold, enhances the sense of arrival into Broadbeach and compliments the event, dining and characteristics of the precinct. The intent of the piece is to activate the corner of the park and provide photo opportunities for locals and visitors. Being illuminated with a range of colours, at night the piece will be able to be calibrated to a number of themes as well as gradually cycle through a set colour combinations.
