Public Art

Parabola is commited to a progressive programme of commissioning and placing public art, placing it at the heart of our places, and the welbeing of our people.

Commissioning Art

We approach commissioning art in our public spaces as an opportunity to enrich people’s lives at work, and at home.

At the heart of our forward thinking development at Edinburgh Park is our significant collaboration with Dovecot Studios, creating a woven interpretation of Leon Kossoff’s ‘Minerva Protects Pax From Mars’.

Parabola also engaged David Mach RA to develop his first sculptural building ‘Mach1’. William Tucker has been commissioned to work with Pangolin Editions to produce ‘Dancer after Degas II’ a large scale bronze sculpture which is the focal point of 1 New Park Square.
