Sirius sculpture, gunwharf quays

HMS Sirius was the flagship of the first fleet to establish a colony in Australia, and has close ties to Portsmouth. PLC Architects were asked to provide designs for a new plinth to support a sculpture of the ship for its relocation to Gunwharf Quays in 2011. The finished design serves as a focal point for a busy shopping arcade and highlights the historic links between Portsmouth and Sydney, Australia.
