GKA successful in pier sculpture contest
George King Architects are very pleased to announce that our design Forged by Flame has been selected as the winning entry in the Eastbourne Pier Sculpture Competition. The sculpture takes the form of an elegant twisting flame and will be made from materials reclaimed from the 2014 pier fire, including 20,000 charred two pence pieces.
Forged by Flame, which was selected from four shortlisted entries, has a budget of £20,000 and will be funded from a £2 million grant pledged by former prime minister David Cameron when he visited Eastbourne shortly after the fire.
The sculpture will be in place on the seafront by summer 2017.
