Help us build a fitting tribute to the man who changed the world. A spectacular three-storey memorial to David Bowie in his birthplace.

We, My witch-wife and I, just pledged £50.00 for this amazing project because Bowie was and is one of the greatest amazing human being that have fallen to earth. We are a low income family, and this make us the richest couple on earth because it is magick! <3

I have pledged £1 so I can say this. This is the most self aggrandising load of rubbish I have ever seen and is absolutely disgusting in every shape and form. There is almost no interest whatsoever in David's history, depth or interest and you've proven this by polishing the whole page with how supposedly amazing you all are for doing this and your silly merchandise. And the pure joke of a name for the joke itself. As a life long fan and deep admirer of the life long work he has put into this, I give you £1 to get on your bike.

I am happy to support a lasting tribute to the greatest musician I have ever known. His music has been a part of me all my life and will continue to be. Long live The Thin White Duke!

David Chambers 25th February 2017

This is a terrible idea. Bowie’s connection to Brixton is tenuous: yes, he was born there, but moved to Bromley at the age of six. And his time in Bromley was much more formative – so put the sculpture there. The sculpture’s disproportionate size intimidates, looming over the already congested streetscape. And adequate funds must be permanently ring-fenced to maintain what will inevitably be a major graffiti and urination magnet. And how can this non-functional 9 meter piece of ironwork cost as much as 1MW wind turbine ? The costs are completely out of whack. But worst of all, the sculpture possesses no artistic merit. It’s mind-numbingly banal and literal, lacking any spark of artistic creativity. That Bowie chose to be privately cremated with no service and then have his ashes scattered at a secret location suggests that a massive and bombastic £1 million memorial is the last thing he would have wanted - spend the money on a David Bowie Music scholarship instead.

Wonderful! JUST PLEASE STOP RUINING THE EXISTING MURAL PLEASE! Personally I'm fed up of people scribbling over it. It's listed (protected) dontcha know?! David Bowie; Forever and Ever. LL x

Love the project and I've just pledged. I think the price is insane, though. It's a bloody big bolt, but really...

Brixton is home for me now, this wonderful memorial next to the murale will surely have to be raised. I'll keep my fingers crossed till the day I'll know it will be built. David, you are life and light in this dark tunnel! Love you forever

This is not the way to memorialise such a great man and musician. David Bowie was a lot more than Aladdin Sane (and why Ziggy Zag??) - you are playing to those who barely knew who he was with a monument such as this. Why not a statue in the sale of Phil Lynott's in Dublin? And a statue depicting him in the nineties rather than the early part of his career which too many are focused on that he is no longer with us, would be far more fitting. Bowie was an innovator, forever trying new things, am not sure he would want to be remembered solely as Aladdin Sane. He did a lot more in his later life. This is cheap and tacky looking and what a ludicrous price tag. Please come up with something more original for a man who was always just that.

The target looks so steep, but I really hope this happens :-) I'm from Brixton and pass by the Bowie mural everyday, and always stop to read the messages on the wall. This installation will be brilliant!

Petra Donnison 22nd February 2017

So happy to be able to play a part in this project. And hopefully it will be complete when I visit Brixton next year from NZ . No one has had an impact on my life as much as Bowie has, I owe him so much. And it's so sad that he's gone. But whilst he was visiting our planet, he didn't half cause a stir!!

I had the privilege of meeting David a few times. First when I was boom guy on his mammoth portrayal of 'Baal' for BBC. Then bumped into him (literally) on a ski slope in Switzerland... spent the week skiing with him, Zowie and Coco... and got to shoot an interview with him for TV-am, backstage in Kentish Town. Always a gent, always a lad. Nicest bloke you could ever meet. His music has been the soundtrack to my life. And what music! It spoke to us. Connected with us. Could the design be made less static with some sort of interaction? Maybe if you point a phone at it something happens? I'd like to see a virtual concert of his greatest stage moments.
