Art Plinth

Consultation has concluded

The Art Plinth at the Brighouse Canada Line Station will be the site of two temporary public artworks over the next two years. Cluster will be in place for approximately one year and will then be replaced by another artwork designed by artist Nathan Lee. The colourful new public artwork has been unveiled at the end of the Canada Line guideway near Brighouse Station on No. 3 Road, bringing new vibrancy to a previously non-descript concrete structure.

Cluster by Vancouver-based artist Carlyn Yandle seemingly transforms the end of the Canada Line guideway into a massive electrical conduit, presented as a round cluster of 25 brightly painted aluminum cylinders that extend out of the end of the guideway. The bold colours were selected based on the coded colours commonly used in fiber-optic wiring.

The end of the guideway, which rests partially on the final support pillar, appears unfinished and aesthetically unappealing as constructed. The public artworks are aimed at transforming the “unfinished” terminus into a vibrant public space and to demonstrate the City's commitment to enhance and bring to life public spaces. It is truly one of the many ways we show we care for our city.

While the artwork may serve as a place marker, it can also inspire residents and visitors to consider future uses of the site and transformation of the City Centre. Future developments around this location provide an opportunity to develop an urban public plaza as an extension of the Brighouse Station.
