Brief Description

Budget: $70,000 CAD The demolition of the Western portion of the Front Street parkade in 2016 required removal of the existing ramps and stairs linking two buildings (600 and 642 Columbia Street) to the parkade structure. After removal of the old connections, new fire egress stairways were required to be installed for these buildings. An opportunity exists to create a public art or design aesthetic enhancement to Fire Exit Stairs at 642 Columbia Street. The intervention should activate the stairwell with an innovative and interactive public art work. The artist will be responsible for design, fabrication and installation of the artwork.
