Beton House, Park Hill, Sheffield

“Matthew Jarratt, curator, consultant and long-time collaborator of Alumno oversaw the public art provision, including the commissioning of Sheffield’s poet laureate, Otis Mensah’s poem We Were Never Derelict. The typeface Park Hill was commissioned from design studio Founded and extracts of the poem rendered in concrete and steel totems

located in the Béton House landscape. The poem is juxtaposed alongside the quotes of former residents of Park Hill, co-ordinated by the team at S1 artspace, reflecting on their lives there, alongside texts from leading theorists & architects who saw the design of Park Hill & other projects askey to social innovation in 1960’s and 70’s.
