A £6.5 million in a scheme to refurbish the centre of Darlington including:
- Steps which linked two parallel streets in the town centre showcasing the Victorian facades which had previously been obscured and greatly improving pedestrian flow.
- A cascade of water which ran down the steps reflecting the history of the site as a meat market and alluding to the washing down of the blood at the end of each market day.
- Barcodes integrated into street furniture, which when scanned would reveal the street furniture’s cost, materials and date of construction.
- A sculpture called Life Pulse which registered visitors’ heart rates and illuminated them.
