The project is called Snowfall, a commission that will appear in the Brookfield Place lobby on a yearly basis at the start of winter.
It was conceived by Studio F Minus and consists of three installations:- A series of 60 suspended and illuminated sculptures of sizes ranging from three to six feet called Gust.
- A 21-foot high abstract take on a snowflake, which takes up much of the six-storey lobby, titled Frost. Tenants and visitors are encouraged to touch the giant snowflake where internal sensors will recognize their interaction and respond with a visual effect similar to running a hand along a frosted window.
- The third phase of Snowfall is a project titled Flurry planned for 2015.
Snowfall runs from Monday, Nov. 24, 2014 to Friday, Jan. 2, 2015 at Brookfield Place Toronto, from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.
