Moving only yards from the bustling activity of Broad Street, we find the Cumberland House carpark, on Tennant Street. This eloquent piece makes a bold statement on the ambivalent relationship between the city and the automobile. Neatly regimented squares conjure up the order implicit in a well-organised carpark, but also the clammy rage of a gridlocked system created by under-investment in public transport. With perfect symmetry, this contrast is mirrored by the calm oceanic blue paint, and the threatening, primitive rows of spiked steel.
