Project summary:

When Julian Opie was commissioned to produce an artwall for the new designer hotel, citizenM Tower of London, he turned to stoneCIRCLE to manufacture the  frieze which was made up of 2.4m high walls: one 18m long and the other 8m with 23 figures in total.

It was produced in Jordans Basebed Portland Stone and patinated bronze, in a similar technique to Rhona Smith's "An Age, An Instant" in New Burlington Mews.  The Portland Stone was routed and the outline figures were  cut  from 5mm bronze sheet on the company's waterjet cutting machine and then patinated and glued into place on site.

We also produced plastic templates for each figure for use during installation to ensure that the bronze was accurately inserted into the slots in the Portland Stone walls.
