Brunel’s 50th anniversary design competition
At the start of Brunel’s 50th anniversary celebrations in October 2016, we launched a competition to design a new permanent installation on campus, something that will celebrate our first fifty years and stand proud for the next fifty.
Dozens of designs were submitted for the competition from students, staff and alumni. From these a long list of just under 30 was selected and voted on by a panel drawn from across the university. From this a shortlist of five was selected for further consideration, and the final two were chosen to go to the public vote.
Hundreds of people vote and the winning design was ‘Connect’
|Lead: Maria Celina Gallo
The final sculpture, inspired by the winning design, was unveiled on the 21 September.
