Horse Power

Artist: Brad Golden & Lynne Eichenberg
Client: City of Kitchener

This project involves the development of a series of components designed to animate a central lawn within a series of formal gardens at the Kitchener City Hall.

Inspired by the well-​preserved stock of industrial buildings within the city, the project features a composition of four large machinery wheels complemented by a monumental glazing screen bearing images selected from the city archives on the surface facing the City Hall and a large, frosted image of a regional scene on the surface facing the countryside beyond.

The ensemble is completed by the “Governor”, a wind-​driven reinterpretation of this industrial control mechanism, a reference to the role of civic government housed within the City Hall.
