Location Ottawa, Ontario
Designer/Architect National Capital Commission
Duration Feb 2000 - Sep 2001
Scope - Soheil Mosun Limited was contracted by the Government of Canada (National Capital Commission) to produce (10) free standing heritage plaques depicting various important milestones in Canadian history. These plaques were cast in solid bronze and patinaed, and are an informative wayfinding component, essential to the first phase of the Confederation Boulevard walking and biking tour route.
Highlights - These (10) plaques contain both original artwork and 3 dimensional cast artifacts relevant to the history and story they are portraying. Cast from solid bronze and patinaed with SML's True-Green® formula, these plaques will endure the harsh conditions of Canada's climate for many years to come. Each plaque is mounted to a concrete pillar atop paver's slabs, with (3) of the plaques mounted to bridge decking.
