modern sculptural seawall thumb Modern Sculptural Seawall By Paul Sangha Landscape Breaks Waves And Boundaries Vancouver, B.C.’;s raw, rocky waterfront underwent a metamorphosis led by landscape architect Paul Sangha, executed first for function and secondarily for fashion. This eye-catching sculpture, aptly dubbed Metamorphous, takes shape as a 200-ft. corten steel structure unfolding along the BC beachfront. The purpose of this unusual attraction? To halt the erosion of the shore line. While the outcome certainly performs its purpose, the designers’; aim was 2-fold – also including an aesthetic aim in the mix. The structure echoes the natural sandstone formations appearing on Saturna Island which inspired this contemporary, industrial-style ar2rk.
