“Nobody else can do what POMO does”.
David, Landscape Architect.
We are specialists in designing and delivering art and artistic bespoke outcomes in the public realm. We work alongside landscape architects and others involved in public realm projects. We create layers of meaning and expression that generates very real connections between places and people and makes measurable contributions to local economies.
Interpreting themes of people and place through a design process we artistically express those themes in public environments. Creative, artistic placemaking helps to create successful public places, it excites communities and it leaves a meaningful legacy.
Working from inception through to delivery our unique creative placemaking design and delivery process unifies people around a shared vision. Our technical skills in all facets of the design documentation & construction process allows us to deliver high quality creative outcomes that meet all standards yet remain true to their original vision. We work with a wide range of artists and specialist makers across Australia including First Nations artists.
We are relationship oriented, easy to work with and are always looking for collaborations of any shape or size.
Bringing an Australian dinosaur to life as a found object metal sculpture.
We were given the job of creating a prehistoric art piece for a project led by our good friends at Vee Design.
We researched the right species, worked out all the anatomical details then created a design for an Australovenator Wintonensis metal sculpture (a uniquely aussie dinosaur unearthed in Winton Qld).
POMO was engaged to collaborate with FourFold Studio and Vee Design in the revitalisation of the main street in Miles Western Queensland. Our role was to delve in the cultural history of the town and then design a number of bespoke creative elements in the landscape that express the uniqueness of the town.
Creative Placemaking Design for the redevelopment of Mooloolaba Foreshore
We were asked to create a series of place-driven design concepts that would tie in with the landscape design of the Mooloolaba Foreshore. These concepts took everyday objects and elements that were to appear in the revitalisation and applied a place-driven artistic lens to their design. This process occurred after a place analysis was conducted and local themes and narratives were identified for expression.
Through a grant from the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts POMO was engaged to deliver a city-wide creative placemaking renewal program in the Nambour CBD. The aim of the project was to creatively enhance the town’s night time appeal, encourage foot traffic and visitation.
This report analyses the unique place context for a city wide urban renewal design process in the town of Nambour Queensland.
This document, running to 158 pages, offered the urban design team a detailed insight into the town so a revitalisation could be created in a way that was driven by Nambour’s unique qualities, represented its culture authentically and positioned it for future demographic changes.
