Anthony Caro’s “Goodwood Steps” has been offered to the Sainsbury Centre on a three-year loan from the Anthony Caro studio. The Sculpture is a large steel structure 33 metre long and 6.5 metre high. April 2021 is the projected installation date.
The intended site for the sculpture is on the open grass parkland beside the University Broad and facing the Ziggurats between Norfolk and Suffolk Terrace. “The placement of this work in proximity to the Lasdun buildings has been specifically selected to resonate and form a powerful echo or reflection of the Ziggurat architecture.”
The Planning Application for the Sculpture can be viewed on the Norwich Planning Website and searching under reference 21/00124/F. Any comments you have should be with Norwich Planning Department by 26th February 2021.
The Yare Valley Society has concerns about the intrusion of this large structure into the open green grassland space so close to the Broad. YVS will ask for it to be positioned further away from the Broad and closer to the ziggurats.
