Peterlee’s Apollo celebrates own 50th anniversary ‘landing’

19-0356LD-0068

The temporary installation by artist Steve Messam, incorporated soft, rounded, 3D, colourful forms in contrast with the hard, angular structure of the concrete pavilion.  The playful, tactile colourful formed a temporary interactive installation for Peterlee.

Visually exciting, bold, strong and interactive, this light up installation could be walked through to capture the full effect of these playful forms in a stimulating way of engaging with this iconic architecture.

Durham County Council chose to mark five decades of the structure with a year of celebrations which has already seen it house a light installation, delivered in partnership with Artichoke, producer of the Lumiere festival, and scene of a 50th birthday party which boasted live music and screenings of lunar-themed films.

The celebrations, also part of the council’s year of culture #Durham19
