A commission for Greg Sather of McCallumSather Architects in Hamilton, ON. This project initiated my interest in relationships between the environment, architecture, art, and the city. Old Growth recalls the archetypical forest as a metaphor for dwelling and relationships between people, nature, and urban life. Calling to mind the ghost forests that once occupied downtown Hamilton, the work is created from a single vantage point across the street in a busy section of downtown.

This work is designed to incorporate the arches that make up the facade of 157 Catherine Street North in Hamilton.

The building is owned by Architect Greg Sather and previously held McCallumSather Architect's office space. McCallumSather is an environmentally focused architectural practice.
