RIBA Award winner, 19 May 2011
The Dover seafront has been transformed by artworks that take the form of three waves gently washing up against the sheltered beach. The Lifting Wave is a repeating form of curving white concrete ramps and staircases that rise and fall to connect the Esplanade to the lower shingle beach.
The Resting Wave; a second sculptural white concrete wall made up of a series of moulded curves. The recesses house oak benches, the promontories raised lawns.
