I am pleased to announce that I have been commissioned to create the public art for The Austin: a new development by Beedie Living in Coquitlam. My large stainless steel hydrangea petal will be installed in the spring of 2014.

The hydrangea can be seen as a metaphor for the vision of Coquitlam’s Citywide Official Community Plan (CWOCP). Each hydrangea petal is like a “compact, complete community” that connects to other communities. Each neighbourhood is unique, yet shares a base structure of interconnected streets. One can think of each neighbourhood as a petal that connects to other petals and then to whole clusters of flowers. The plant veins are a transportation network for the lifeblood of the plant just as streets are a transportation network for the lifeblood of the community.
