Wave

York Community Recreation Centre

Aluminum, Grasses.

3m x 25m

2015

First impression: a rolling wave rises from the landscape cresting in a gentle curve. The aluminum curve catches the light, which highlights the grooves and fissures in the sculpted form. The wave is a unique intervention, a striking visual arc that stretches 25 meters across the landsacpe. A fusion of the organic and sculpted metal, Wave activates both the landscape and the imagination in a dynamic reimaging .of the movement of water, inspired by the landform of which it is a part. Wave also echoes and makes reference to the green roof of the proposed building.
