Trinity Square Project Featured in Landzine Magazine

We were featured in Landzine’s publication this week, with the magazine featuring a piece on the Trinity Square project in Hull. Landzine said the mirror pools are “enticing people to touch, walk through them or stare at the occasional pulse which creates beautiful patterns in the surface. ”

The article also discussed the ways Trinity Square has been used an exhibition space, both as part of Hull’s time as the 2017 City of Culture and since, including the ‘Hall for Hull’ exhibition from¬†Pezo von Ellrichhausen and artist Felice Varini. You can read the full article on the Landzine website here.
