Up Projects,

UP Projects has been working with Berkeley Homes on the development and delivery of a cultural strategy for their new Vista development in Nine Elms, Battersea in the London Borough of Wandsworth, located next to the open spaces of Battersea Park and close the River Thames. The strategy includes proposals for integrated artists’ commissions across the site as well as community engagement events and activity.

The project will unfold over a number of years, and we are thrilled to have appointed Nicky Hirst to develop a glazed cladding treatment for the façade of the buildings, Matthew Darbyshire to develop a sculptural play space, S. Mark Gubb to deliver a wayfinding commission across the site and a new community focused site-specific film and performance focussed community engagement project by Lucy Cash.
