With a huge span of 90 meters, Canopy is a sculpture inspired by walking in the dappled light of the forest. Thousands of individual geometric light modules are arranged in a non-repeating pattern to simulate light filtering through the leaves of overhead trees. In the daytime, light is allowed to shine through the modules illuminating the street below, while at night, LED lighting shines from each cell in flowing patterns that resemble a light breeze shaking the leaves of the forest.
The Canopy — which spans 90×3 meters — was built by United Visual Artists using powder-coated steel, anodised aluminium, injection moulded polycarbonate, LED, and Code.
Canopy is located at the Hôtel Le Germain Maple Leaf Square in Toronto
