Permanent and temporary artwork programmes involving the integration of art, architecture, landscape construction and urban design.

Ottawa Light Rail Transit

Client: City of Ottawa

The Ottawa Light Rail Transit Programme is a $2.1 billion infrastructure project, including the construction of 13 transit stations.

The $10 million art programme was developed, working cooperatively as a member of the project design team, providing multiple opportunities for a variety of public art projects that engage the architecture and landscape designs of the stations. Extensive stakeholder communication was an integral component of the development of this programme.

“Brad’s vast experience in public art and complex urban design projects, along with his integrity and passion, were the driving force in developing an art plan for the City of Ottawa’s Light Rail Project.

His excellent communication skills and diplomacy, his keen eye for design in the built environment and cultural sensitivities, were essential in seeking approbation from the many stakeholders involved and inspiring confidence.”
