public art commission
Along with Feenstra Architecture and Sharp & Diamond Landscape Architecture, Germaine Koh is part of the design team for the No. 2 Road North Drainage Pump Station in Richmond, BC. Integrating an artist into the design team created an opportunity to treat the entire building project as an expression of artistic intent. For this site, the fundamental intention was to conceive the entire site as a functional artwork, as much as any particular objects or details that might be included.
