Addo were engaged by Confluence to curate and manage the appointment of artists / designers / architects to work on a project located on the river corridor in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire’s county town. Following an open selection process, Studio Weave, an award-winning RIBA Chartered Architecture Practice based in London, were appointed to create a permanent art installation that would test new ways of working and reconnecting people, through engagement with the arts, into the process of regenerating the town. ‘Cleddau Reaches’ (2018) reinforces the connections between the town and its natural environment, in the form of a series of aquatic sculptures that memorialise native trees that once formed part of the vernacular landscape of the River Cleddau that runs through the town centre.
