Every leaf Speaks Bliss to Me

Every Leaf Speaks Bliss To Me

Beedie Living’s The Austin, Coquitlam

“Every Leaf Speaks Bliss To Me” at 955 Austin Avenue at Blue Mountain in Coquitlam, is a large plasma cut stainless steel hydrangea petal.

 

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.
