Gateway

"Man made objects and structures have throughout history played a part in marking boundaries, heralding a persons arrival to a new place. They serve to communicate, good or bad, the aspirations or expectations of the community that built them."

"The distinctiveness of suburban communities are increasingly lost to an often generic sprawl of development that merges boundaries. Public art can help reinforce a sense of place and identity by marking the boundaries of a place."

Stephen Broadbent
