URBAN FOREST 

Corner of Stephen Ave + 3 St SW

These 26-metre metal “trees” became one of the most controversial structures ever erected in a public space in Alberta. Commissioned by Bankers Hall, the structures are actually the vestiges of what was intended to be an enclosed galleria – an extension of the mall. Instead, they are widely accepted as a public art project – commonly thought to have been designed to help reduce wind gusts along the downtown corridor.
