Merging Art with Architecture for Climate Adaption

Oct. 10, 2023
Get a firsthand look at CANOPY, a public art installation from Stantec's Jonathan Monfries that merges the concept of climate adaptation with placemaking architecture that meets a public need.
As part of The Works Art and Design Festival, Stantec's Jonathan Monfries worked with the concept of resiliency and climate adaptation to create a piece of artwork for public use with the idea of placemaking. CANOPY allows us to think about the future of where we live in, while providing an inviting, solution-oriented design that offers shade where people come together. The affordable marine-grade plywood design can be disassembled for future use, but offers plenty of beauty that causes us to rethink cities in the future.
