Architect / Designer Notes
Seven Dials Monument Column
Andrew ("Red") Mason after Edward Pierce Unveiled 29 June 1989 by Queen
Beatrix of the Netherlands, as part of the celebrations for the tercentenary of William and Mary's accession. The original Sundial Pillar was erected by Thomas Neale in the early 1690s; it was pulled down in 1773 in order to deter "undesirables" from congregating around it. [15 ]
ob 08 Sculpture
Central Saint Giles, St Giles High Street 2008
The bright red abstract sculpture, which stands 5 metres high, is made of painted and lacquered glass-fibre-reinforced plastic. Gontarski wished to "create a heart in the midst of an urban development".
Central Saint Giles, St Giles High Street
Adapted from a smaller work by the sculptor also titled
William. The fluid, anonymous figure is intended to "speak of the ever-shifting present" and not of the past, and thus have the opposite qualities to most public sculpture. [16 ]
