Wolfgang Buttress


Wolfgang Buttress is an award winning artist who creates simple, elegant and contextual public artworks which seek to define and celebrate a sense of place. Through the use of materials, repetition of natural form and sensitive reference to history and location, each piece enriches its location in a holistic and sustainable manner.

Buttress explores and interprets scientific discoveries, collaborating with architects, landscape architects, scientists and musicians to create human-centred experiences.  He is well known for the UK Pavilion (Milan EXPO 2015) and The Hive, which is currently installed at Royal Botanic Gardens in London. The project has won over 25 awards including the gold medal for best in show at the 2015 Expo in Milan.
