After five years of construc­tion and plan­ning - starting with the 2015 compe­ti­tion - the work on the new Kath­leen Andrews garage has now been completed. Due to the restric­tions caused by the pandemic, neither the new building nor the art has yet been opened. But here are photos and a film from: David Dodge, GreenEnergyFutures.ca


Five topo­graphic models of moun­tain-land­scapes in the scale of ca. 1:1.000 - 1:3.000 depict geographic areas in different parts of the world, which are on the same lati­tude as the city of Edmonton in Canada. The corre­sponding longi­tu­dinal coor­di­nates are written on the sides of the lanterns. Stain­less-steel, each 7 x 7 m, Kath­leen-Andrews-Transit-Garage in Edmonton, Alberta. Comple­tion 2020.
