The 10m sculpture has been called Shadow Gate and has been designed by architects Tonkin Liu and Arup who pioneered the 'shell laced structure."

The Beverley Gate site has a rich diversity of historical context, a place that once marked the city's edge and defiance against the King, a thriving port where 'ships up streets' were a common sight and a place of recognition for William Wilberforce by that of a 30m-high monument.

Shadow Gate will work as a tool for marking points in time, a device to highlight the important moments in Hull's history and future. The design learns from traditional sundials and applies the principles in an innovative way.

Revised plans to revamp the area were given the go ahead last month. Beverley gate has recently been designated a scheduled ancient monument and the proposals are waiting to be given the go ahead by the Culture Secretary John Whittingdale.
