In 2010 Futurecity wrote a strategic public art strategy for Great Kneighton (then known as Clay Farm and Glebe Farm). Stemming from a detailed community consultation, six leading UK and international artists were commissioned to develop ambitious new creative approaches to placemaking in a 120-hectare growth area for Cambridge, which will eventually provide 3,000 new homes. Artists are currently working across a range of disciplines: biodiversity, play, sustainability, community development, landscape design, history and heritage, food and growing, health and wellbeing. Their ambitious proposals have influenced the architecture, landscape, infrastructure, play space, bridges, public art, street furniture, land-art and community spaces and provided deeply woven narratives about place and community into the fabric of the public realm.
