An Installation by David Pearl and Ian Gray
This artist and landscape architect collaboration at C2G2, The Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery in Waterloo
designed by Pattkau Archtects, uses the silo as an architectural link between the gallery building and the landscape.
It is a site device. The silo, both a rural and urban built form, contains an 'inserted landscape' of plants and water,
as a memory device to recreate the wetlands of the gallery's surroundings prior to land reclamation and construction.
The silo has glass planks etched with maps of the area in earlier periods: glass is a part of the container,
glass allows you to see in and out of the silo, glass is a lens - on the past.
