The winner of a sculpture competition to design a viewing platform for the landmark arts campus has been announced

After receiving more than 170 entries from artists, designers and architects, Aldeburgh Music has announced the winner in its competition to design a family-friendly viewing sculpture for Snape Maltings.

The project, supported by the Coastal Communities Fund, aims to attract more families to Snape Maltings, offering a new way of viewing the stunning landscape of the Alde estuary. The winning design, selected by a judges informed by the views of Suffolk children, is Myriad by artist David Rickard and architect Germano Di Chello. Aldeburgh Music will work with them to build and install Myriad in 2016.

Myriad will stand on the Henry Moore Lawn, holding an array of mirrors high above visitors’ heads that will bring views over the surrounding landscape down to earth. Many of the mirrors will be complemented with reflectors below, at a child-friendly height.’

Roger Wright, chief executive of Aldeburgh Music, said the judges were thrilled to receive such a large number of high-quality proposals.

“It will be marvellous to have a sculpture that has clearly captured children’s imagination. Programming more events for families is a key priority for us over the next few years and this new family-friendly work will provide another reason to visit this wonderful site.”
