Name: Love is the Honey
Location: Saddler’s Yard
Designed and decorated by: Andrew Cornes.
Andrew wanted to design something positive, inclusive and universal – and he imagined a bee made of honey. The title is from a Victor Hugo quote: “…life is the flower of which love is the honey”. A single bee cannot make honey – it is the product of community and cooperation. Honey is created and shared by the many, symbolising a shared responsibility for a sustainable future.
NOMA is an innovative, commercially driven and responsibly designed neighbourhood that embraces its rich heritage and champions the idea that places are better when people can get involved in making them. The 20 acre masterplan is creating 4 million square feet of new homes, offices, hotels, shops, restaurants and bars around vibrant urban spaces and public realm.
Andrew has been working in the North West as a graphic designer for more than 20 years – largely in the public/health sector and now independently. He retains an interest in creative approaches to problem solving. @AndrewCornes
