Tacchi Morris Arts Centre 1995-2000

Gabriella Falk was lead artist during the development and building of the Tacchi Morris Arts Centre, 1995-2000. She developed and led a major Public Art Programme which led to nine artists being commissioned to make work on the theme of performance and co-operation for the new building on the campus of Heathfield Community School.

In collaboration with the architects, Kensington Taylor, Gabriella designed the hard and soft landscaped approach to the centre and installed a mosaic water pool and water feature.

As part of her contribution to the Public Art programme she led a residency project which enabled year 7 children to design bronze paving slabs which were inserted into the permanent paving outside the centre alongside the work of professional sculptor Jill Randall.
