Steel & Aluminium Cast Sculpture for Future City

London Basin, London

May 2019

millimetre working in conjunction with Future City and Mount Anvil fabricated the Lexicon sculpture designed by Studio Swine for London Basin.

The scuplture is a combination of 35mm weathering steel and a 30mm corrosion resistant coreten baseplate which serves as the support for a cast aluminium multi faceted boulder. 

The 3.5 tonne sculpture was constructed offsite and craned into position in an unweathered state where it will take 6-8 months to oxidise and achieve its full colour.
