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

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
