Located 400 kilometres north of London, England, Blaze by McChesney Architects is a roadside art installation that graces the A66 motorway. The 35 square meter sculpture is made out of 472 gilded aluminum staves that are arranged to form a curvilinear silhouette.

This architectural element adorns its surrounding green landscape and unveils gridded patterns that change according to a viewer's perspective. Catching the sun's rays, Blaze by McChesney Architects features a bright sculptural shape that is a futuristic addition to its surrounding countryside location.

The sculpture's creator is set to build replicas of Blaze that will be displayed at various locations along the A66 motorway as part of a project to revamp the road's changing architectural identity.
