Smith works on Great Ormond Street installation

Cambridge-based consultancy Smith is working on an installation for Great Ormond Street Hospital that will use young patients’ artwork based on the theme of leaves.

The consultancy has been commissioned to create an installation for the reception area of the Somers Clinical Research Facility. It will use artwork created by children in a programme with artist Lucy Fergus.

Adrian Kimpton, director of Smith, says the consultancy was appointed to the work around six weeks ago. He says, ‘We’re looking to get it to break out of the reception space, with the design replicating leaves blowing in the wind.’

The work will be used in the reception and corridor areas, and will use the children’s work in a variety of sizes and scales. It is due to be installed in October.
