Lymesmith worked with MWA to develop the colour palette, the relief artwork, and documentation of the 83 unique pre-cast panels, including placement of the 10,000+ coloured enamel ‘cups’ embedded in the wall.

Ultimately, the sculpture wall is an urban, scaled painting in relief, combining light and colour in a constant interplay of form and pattern. Walking, waiting or driving by in a bus, the wall forms a continuous civic fabric defining the interchange landscape and giving it a memorable and legible identity. Peter McGregor, MWA
