Sited at Middlehaven Dock, Middlesbrough, Temenos is a striking contemporary artwork that brings together art and the engineering and the industrial heritage of the area.

The sculpture by internationally acclaimed artist Anish Kapoor and leading structural designer Cecil Balmond, stands almost 50 metres high and is 110 metres long.

It stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the Transporter Bridge - which it now rivals for the starring role of iconic image of the town.

The new UK passport, launched in 2015, celebrates “Creative United Kingdom” and places Middlesbrough firmly on the map as internationally acclaimed artist Anish Kapoor’s Temenos is featured prominently in this representation of the greatest achievements of the last 500 years.

Temenos was unveiled in 2010. 

One of the most impressive views of this giant sculpture is standing right underneath it to get the full sense of the scale.
