The Exbury Egg: Art, Architecture + Environmental Awareness | sustainable architecture | Scoop.it

Artist Stephen Turner has worked with PAD Studio to create the Exbury Egg, the first water-borne artist’s studio, designed to combine art, architecture and sustainability of a fragile marine environment.


Turner (who specialises in long term artistic explorations of environmental settings), will now use it as a “residency”, floating in the Beaulieu Estuary for a year, to examine the changing patterns of its marine ecology, while making artworks inspired by his surroundings. “This ambitious project tests the role of artists and architects in sensitive places and contributes to raising awareness of the importance of protecting places like the Estuary”, explains the artist.
