Philip Watts Design is creating a five-storey sculpture for Birmingham’s Custard Factory. The artwork will occupy a new extension to the arts and media building, and will have three glass walkways puncturing it. Watts was commissioned two years ago to create the work, which he says represents a ‘mass of energy’ that makes the journey across the bridges feel ‘deliberately unsettling’. The structure will be unveiled in February.
