Public Art Project, Parkdale Plaza (along the Bow River)

Artist – Brian Tolle
Fabricated and installed by F&D Scene Changes
Completed in June 2015

This project is part of the City of Calgary’s stormwater system along the Landscape of Memory in Parkdale Plaza. The inverted replica of Mount PeeChee is constructed of Ductal, a high performance concrete product, and required an extensive research and development process during the sculpting and casting process. Due to high amounts of public access, it also functions as a handrail for visitors and complies with all design and safety requirements as outlined by the project team.

Located in the East Village of Calgary, CSquare Urban Park is an open and flexible space that is used year round by the public. A key element to this park is The Veil, which was fabricated and installed by F&D Scene Changes in 2015.

The Veil is an arrangement of 57 aluminum posts and illuminated perforated fins which have integrated LED lighting. At night, The Veil interacts with the adjacent LRT line by illuminating each fin as the C-train passes. During musical performances, the lights in each fin appear to ‘dance’ as they respond to changes in the decibels of the song.




Fabrication Highlights:

• Three towers ranging in height from 40 to 60 feet tall.
• Approximately 40,000 LED lights were used for illumination.
• Bases were clad in granite.

Gracing the entryway of the Vaughan Mills Mall recent expansion are the Number Towers. These three towers range in size from 40 through to 60 feet in height.  The bases, clad in black granite set the stage elegantly for the rest of the sculptures. There is a tempered glass cladding enrobing the stainless and mild steel framing. One of the towers sports five foot high numbers stacked one on top of another. To light the towers at night, over 40,000 LED lights were placed strategically making the towers a shining entryway beacon for shoppers after nightfall.
