Bosa Development Corporation and the District of North Vancouver are seeking an artist team to create artwork associated with the development of a new neighbourhood (Lynn Valley Town Centre Redevelopment) located in the District of North Vancouver. The intention of the overall project is to develop an easily accessed and human-scaled artwork experience that will become a visible landmark for the residents of Lynn Valley. Submission deadline is Friday June 19, 2015 - 2pm.
The goal for the development is to create a successful, pedestrian oriented, village centre featuring a diversity of stores, cafes, green streets, unique public plazas and places for people, as well as public art. The overall theme for the landscape design, which transcends to the public art, explores the District of North Vancouver’s contemporary setting in conjunction with its geographical context within the North Shore Mountains.
The entire site is envisioned to be an artwork “palette” of integrated art, standalone iconic pieces and signature artwork. Three elements - history, geology, and water combine to form themes that will be expressed in the paving, feature plazas, site furnishings, and will provide a unifying, engaging and interactive language and narrative for the site.
