Public sculpture stands in urban public places, which plays a role in alleviating congestion, congestion and rigidity caused by the concentration of buildings in the city with high-rise buildings and roads, and sometimes can also play a role in increasing balance in open fields.
With the general advancement of urbanization, the economy is no longer the only standard to measure the development of a city, and urban soft power has increasingly become a symbol to measure the degree of urban civilization, especially cultural soft power, which represents the attractiveness, influence and radiation of a city. Good urban sculpture can even be regarded as the city’s city logo, becoming a brand identity and visual symbol symbolizing the city’s identity.
As a business card and messenger to display the image of the city, sculpture should also follow certain principles when designing and creating.
First, the style and technique of sculpture should pay attention to the characteristics of the area set
Sculptures in historically rich areas and monumental sites should be as classicist or realistic as possible. Modern environments can be modernist or abstract sculptures.
Second, the theme or form of the sculpture should reflect the spirit of the place
Sculptures should reflect the historical characteristics, cultural connotations or regional characteristics of the place.
Third, the shape, volume or color of the sculpture should correspond to the overall environment of the area to be set
Depending on the specific characteristics of public places, or in harmony with them, or in contrast with each other, it is impossible to blindly borrow or copy the sculptures of other cities.
