Monument Park

In mid 2012 MCR and MAB started working toward the realization of 'Monument Park' – a space between New Quay Promenade and 'The Quays' apartments. It seemed that this place had to address all the negative perceptions of the docklands. The ambition was to readdress retail, to provide shelter, to engage all ages, be playful, somewhere to sit and be 'Art'. The artist Callum Morton’s submission was chosen and the collaboration was further enhanced by the inclusion of the landscape Architect Occulus. The rest of the description of the project is best served by quoting Callum’s `opening’ speech.
