Millennium Place,
Hales Street,
West Midlands,


Part of the city's £50 million Millennium Project, this public space incorporates a number of public works of art. The Francoise Schein's 24hr clock with its blue neon lights depicting the time zones of the world, is flanked by the 'Peoples Bench & Obelisk' designed by the internationally renowed German artist Jochen Gertz, who invited the people of the city to write a message inspiring friendship, that was then engraved onto one of the hundreds of plates that make up the bench. The Glass Bridge that links Millennium Place to the Garden of International Friendship was designed by Alexander Beleschenko. The Whittle Arch - the crowing glory - celebrates the Coventry born Sir Frank Whittle whose invention of the Jet engine changed the world.
