Lewis Farms Fire Hall 

I am pleased to have completed a large scale architectural surface design commission for the Edmonton Arts Council. Designed over a year-long collaboration with the building’s project team and architects, the piece is formed out of multiple tiles of Ductal high-performance concrete and forms the majority of the exterior cladding of the building.

Much of my inspiration for the final piece was thinking about the Northern Lights and starry skies on a crisp, clear Alberta night. Maybe you’re standing in your backyard and you’re just in awe of what you see above you – you’ve forgotten about the chill for a moment. And it’s a very common experience that many take for granted – not many people in Canada, let alone the world, live at the latitude to see Northern Lights regularly. I think as Albertans we live for those moments – at least I do!

Project status: designed in 2015 and installed in February 2016. Located on the exterior cladding of the Lewis Farms Fire Hall in Edmonton, Canada.
