Design Chosen For Bermuda Triangle Landmark

May 22, 2017

A panel of judges representing eight local organisations has selected the winning design for a new Bermuda Triangle art installation at Clearwater Beach, with Bermudian Shane Mora being chosen following a Request for Proposal [RFP] process that inspired eleven qualified submissions.

The BTA said, “The objective of the installation is to create an iconic piece that would lure and captivate visitors with its originality and unique Bermudian characteristics. Ultimately, the goal is to leverage the Bermuda Triangle as a marketing attribute that sets Bermuda apart from other destinations.”

“Mr Mora’s concept hit all of the objectives in the RFP,” said Pat Phillip-Fairn, chief product and experiences development officer at the Bermuda Tourism Authority. “

His vision includes Bermuda’s unique architecture, it complements the eco-friendliness of the area and we expect that it will really capture the imaginations of our visitors. The panel was also pleased with the attention Mr Mora paid to how his triangle can be marketed and how it will inspire group travellers to use the space for special events.”

Designer Share Mora said: “I am thrilled and honoured that the judging panel has chosen my design concept. I look forward to executing the idea in a way that will benefit our entire community whilst at the same time becoming a lasting memory for our visitors.”

The BTA added, “The Bermuda Tourism Authority collaborated with seven local entities to formulate the idea of a Bermuda Triangle art installation and worked with representatives of each organisation to evaluate the submissions. Represented on the panel were:

  • Bermuda Tourism Authority
  • Institute of Bermuda Architects
  • Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce
  • Hub 1: St. George’s and St. David’s Island
  • Ministry of the Environment
  • Bermuda Land Development Company, Ltd.
  • Department of Planning

Ms Phillip-Fairn said: “We are very grateful to our partners who have been so supportive of this idea from the concept stage, and I know we can count on their continued support through to execution.

“The quality of the submissions we received was very high, which means Mr Mora can be especially proud to have stood out among such a talented group.”

The panel also acknowledged proposals with Honourable Mentions from John Gardner and Nicole Martin.

The Bermuda Triangle design will require formal approval from the Department of Planning. After that has been accomplished a timetable will be set for the construction of Mr Mora’s design.
