This 40-hectare site is the former Defense Establishment Research Agency (DERA), and includes a natural woodland setting for contemporary office spaces, new homes, education facilities, restaurants and a village centre.
A public art competition, featuring five international artists, was held for the prominent roundabout entrance location. Renown British artist, Wolfgang Buttress, was selected by the jury to create an impressive 19m high Corten steel sculpture, entitled Bloom.
