ART IN ARCHITECTURE
Art in Architecture launched in 2023 as a pioneering collaboration between Mood and Space and SoShiro an organisation connecting emerging artists from diverse backgrounds with art commissioners to enhance the evolving story of our cities and spaces.
Through Art in Architecture, we establish a hands-on relationship with developers and architects at the early project stages to ensure art commissions are not an afterthought. As a collaborative platform for emerging talent, we are not constrained by a traditional gallery model – liberating us to work with a broad range of creatives and mediums for a progressive and dynamic response.
We believe art commissioning in the built environment should be a process of learning and discovery, with an open dialogue between developers, artist and the community to ensure a deep understanding of collective objectives. We work directly with our clients or alongside consultant teams to support the process of diversifying talent and embedding art in the built environment.
It is our belief that broad social value is achieved when artwork has an authentic and meaningful narrative, and a compelling connection to place. MAS and SoShiro are perfectly placed to deliver this service because of Hanna's experience with large scale regeneration and the use of art in placemaking and Shiro's 20 years’ experience and global network of artists, craftspeople and fabricators. The combination of these skills ensures a solid foundation for the design and delivery of artworks whilst accessing exciting new talent.
