Morag Myerscough’s mantra is ‘make happy those who are near and those who are far will come’. Born and bred in London, she has always lived in the city and has been fascinated by how colour, pattern and words can change urban environments -- and change people’s perceptions of spaces into places.
She often works with community groups to develop ideas that reflect the identity of the users, drawing on shared cultural history and heritage of the local area. Her visual vocabulary is inclusive by nature, and its effortless energy resonates both visually and emotionally with audiences well beyond geographical and cultural boundaries.
Morag Myerscough will use this approach to create a gateway or ‘welcome pavilion’ for the former gasworks site at Ship Street, from where visitors will be able to view the entire site and imagine how it might be developed in future.
