Artistic super bowl set to grace Durham skyline

Posted on by in News

Durham County Council has revealed proposals for Sky Bowl, a 15m diameter steel structure and visitor attraction designed by Swedish artist Pal Svensson that would change the skyline of the city. Support has been expressed from sources as diverse as the Bishop of Durham and local trade union leaders and an exhibition was held last month to gauge public reaction. The bowl would be constructed in weathering steel externally, with an interior of polished stainless steel to reflect the sky. Each section of the outer shell will incorporate artwork from a different County Durham community.
