Built 1988, Project Description: The piece includes 50 quarried granite cubes. The rough cubes emerge from the rip-rap (broken granite) at the water's edge, move into the newly formed tidal pools, and transform into polished cubes as they step up onto the plaza. A fountain forms a center-piece for the waterfront development project, reinforcing the relationship between the community and its water edge. To deal with the existing conditions -- 15-foot tides and a rip-rap edge -- Vaughan wished to expand the communitys awareness of the quality of the rip-rap as a material and to recognize the extended landscape through the use of tide pools. Project History: When the Municipality of West Vancouver developed their waterfront, they commissioned Don Vaughan to design a fountain as a center-piece for the project. This was Vaughans graduation project from the Emily Carr School of Art. Chandler Memorial did the wire cuts on the granite. Sponsor/Developer: Municipality of West Vancouver and private donation. Project Location: Ambleside Landing, Vancouver, BC. Media: granite from central interior of British Columbia. Size 120' x 170'
