Sheffield based firm Axis Architects have been involved with the Man of Steel project from the beginning. They are currently preparing a full planning application for submission to Rotherham Council.
Architect Chris Cooney’s expertise and design knowledge has been an essential element in shaping the direction of the project and the appearance of the sculpture itself. His team are currently working on a 3D version of the sculpture that will include its immediate surroundings. This will allow them to experiment with surface finishes for the sculpture and column and provide them with useful information for developing a full planning application. This will include a public consultation study that will give people living in the region an opportunity to meet the team and discuss the project and to see every detail of the scheme for the first time.
