Location: Chief Mathias Joe Park. Unceded Coast Salish territory, City of North Vancouver, BC.
A collaboration between IMu Chan/ FSOARK Architect and Rebecca Bayer / spacemakeplace design, Storytelling is part of the renovation of Chief Mathias Joe Park in the City of North Vancouver, BC. The sculptures were installed in May 2016 and the new park’s grand opening was on October 28, 2016.
Sitting in silhouette on either side of the park entry path, the sculptures mimic the form of the ‘Twin Sisters,’ the twin mountain peaks that tower over North Vancouver. The sculptures are designed to be playful and tactile.
Special thanks to the Squamish First Nation for providing the story: Wa Áyasnewas chat ta Swwú7mesh iy ta Steín (The Peace between the Squamish and the Haida)
This project was commissioned by the City of North Vancouver.
