GLASS SCULPTURE AND WALKWAY

Finalist proposal for Four Seasons Courtyard, Yorkville, Toronto
Rows of free-standing glass panels, up to 10 feet high, extending to 40 feet, each suggests reflected light, ripples of falling water, first snow. These H2o patterns are crystallized on the sculptures surface as concentric and overlapping circles.
They are diamond cut or etched into the glass panels and positioned so that multiple planes are viewed simultaneously as a complicated receding depth composed of light play. The panels create a wall and a walkway that both defines the sites edge and opens it as a walkway to explore. Between the pathway walls a small spring pond fountain is flush to the ground with related stainless ground pattern inlays.
