Sculptural shelter designed and built at Wish Park in Hove, UK for the use of children and families who use the play area. The sculpture is designed in honour of an elephant said to be buried in the park – part of a travelling circus – who sadly died there and was laid to rest in the grounds. Architectural design by Chalk Architecture with narrative typography of elephant poems by children that use the playground designed by Richard Wolfstrome.

The new civic centre in Shoreham-by-Sea, for Adur District Council, required a new identity and wayfinding to complement the modern building style.

As a civic building, and a place that is used by a broad spectrum of the Shoreham and Adur community, there was an emphasis to develop a scheme that had a good level of accessibility, be well-designed, elegant and sympathetic to the building intention. Running an initial nomenclature phase, involving stakeholders, together we agreed to name the new building ‘The Shoreham Centre’ to communicate a clear, straight-forward name and purpose.

New London Underground map shows how long it takes to walk between the stations; not ride a train

Transport for London has released an alternative version of the London Underground map – a walk the tube version, which shows how long it takes to stroll between the stations. Rather brilliant I think.
