The W. Garfield Weston Foundation commissioned Aquaverde for the redesigned Grange Park adjacent to the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto.
This water sculpture resulted from a limited competition to design an artwork for the circular area at the end of a curved wall carrying a rill of water across the park. The design is a mirror polished stainless steel bowl which receives the water from the rill, with seven spouts delivering laminar flowing water into cups. The cups break the flow and create animation of the water that can be seen from a distance.
LED lights are set below the cups to provide a programme of colour changing lighting at night.
The park was reopened and Aquaverde inaugurated on 8th July 2017 by Mr. and Mrs. Galen Weston.
