25m ‘spring’ sculpture for Brighton’s new culture centre
A 25-metre-high sculpture has been unveiled in Brighton’s new cultural centre.
Spring in your step by Alex Chinnec, made from galvanised steel, dominates the square in Circus Street in the regenerated area of central Brighton.
“A Spring in your step took three years to complete, weighs four tonnes, is 25 metres tall, and follows a non-repeating, expanding and contracting helical form - making it my most complex sculpture to date” Chinneck said.
The neighbourhood has been created on the site of the city’s former fruit and vegetable market by Brighton and Hove City Council in partnership with the University of Brighton, Coast to Capital, GCP Student Living plc, Gravis Capital Management and M&G Real Estate.
