Seed was a commission for the atrium of Liverpool Hope University’s Gateway Building in 2008. By rolling laser cut weathering steel it creates a more 3D aspect and the accentuates the feeling of movement.
The design is simple in concept, taking its idea from the movement of seeds, which mirrors the movement of people in this busy building, and those arriving and leaving Hope University, a place of nurture and growth
that sends students out to the wider world as though seeds. The Greek transcript expresses the principals of Faith, Hope and Love, being highlighted as the founding principles of Hope University.
