History has shown us that when people are ready to be free from tyrannical rule, statues are pulled down as a symbol of change and representing the possibility of limitless positive change. The proposal put forth by the team of Space2Place focusses on the moment a communist leader’s statue is toppling. A statue of Vladimir Lenin has been chosen because he represents the first leader of a communist state. The statue is set within a defined square that transitions into a Canadian park-like setting featuring irregularly placed boulders and benches constructed out of wood and stone. Ideas of freedom and hope are embodied by the befalling statue and enveloped in a space of contemplation and nature. A donors’ wall made of reflective stainless steel reflects the scene of the statue and its surroundings.
