‘Hallam Square’, 1993-4
Hallam Square, City Campus, Sheffield Hallam University
(the square has since been re-designed)
mixed materials, including paving
At the Howard Street entrance to
the City Campus, Sheffield Hallam University, over looked by Arundel Way.
(A-Z p5 4F)
A complex shaped area, with stone
curved seating and an area with designed paving. It acts both as an entrance
to the University and also as a thoroughfare to people travelling between
the bus and railway stations and the City centre via the adjacent Arundel
Sheffield Hallam University.
It is difficult to make sense
of the design at ground level, it is possibly appreciated best from the
upper stories of the overlooking university buildings. The area is due for
extending and altering as part of the Millennium bid for ‘Remaking the Heart
of City’. The lead artist for the new project is Laura White.
(1999) There has
been a radical re-design of the square, but the full redevelopment of
Howard Street and Arundel Way in this area has not yet taken place. (2005) Further redevelopment is still underway. Major artwork and
redesign of the area between here and the Railway Station is imminent.
