EDGEWATER

 

Client: Delfin Lend Lease

Artists: Cliff Burtt, Robert Bridgewater

 

Edgewater is a planned residential development by Delfin Lend Lease on 95 hectares of what was the Australian Defence Industries' Explosive Works and Ammunition Factory.

 

The first public artwork to be commissioned was a series of three sculptural elements by Cliff Burtt in corten steel. The work references two of the major features of the site; the landscape and Maribyrnong River and the site's past as an ammunition factory and blasting powder magazine.

 

Artist Robert Bridgewater was also selected to undertake an urban art commission for this project.
