Of Concrete and Cursive Characters
Inspected some lovely samples from Central Signs yesterday for the new Darling Quarter development at Darling Harbour, Sydney. There will be around 100 metres of interpretive text fragments scattered along the pedestrian pathway between two very energy efficient office buildings. All the text and graphics are set into solid concrete pavers, in jet-cut and sandcast bronze, precast concrete and an epoxy blended with quartz and glass beads.
We wanted to run with a road-marking product called Beadcrete RMS, but no one is willing to guarantee it in this application. So Central Signs have kindly simulated the Beadcrete RMS using coloured epoxy and bits of quartz and glass beads. Central are also making 30 brass plaques to accompany each concrete paver. The end product should be quite stunning. Stay tuned!
