Living Colour Bursts Into Streets of Sydney

by Citywide | 06.11.2013
The Citywide Open Space team recently filled the streets of Sydney with gorgeous displays of potted colour as part of the 2013 Living Colour Festival.

Sydney Living Colour 2013 - CitywideThe theme for the season is ‘Spring Cycle’ so the team creatively constructed graphics such as wheels, bikes and chains using annuals, potted colour and even some edible additions. In total, the team installed nearly 900 crates that house over 28,000 200mm pots to produce this season’s floral displays throughout the CBD.

There was also an incorporation of 3D elements using picket fences and mounted bikes to really capture people’s imagination. At the end of the display, the plants and bikes will find their way into new homes around Sydney with all stock being donated to local community groups, schools and as additions to garden beds within the Sydney Parks.

Living Colour is one of the largest seasonal floral displays of its kind in Australia and this year it has expanded to even more locations across the City of Sydney area. Designers use more than 30,000 individually grown potted flowers and plants to create the stunning floral designs in dozens of separate displays, which naturally develop so people can watch the art pieces grow and change.

Almost 100 planters are spread throughout the City and its surrounds, transforming hard surfaced areas of the City into floral landscapes.
