“The Storm” is an 8 m tall metal sculpture located on the Ajax Waterfront adjacent to the ‘Waterfront Trail’. It captures one of the most dynamic, powerful, and energetic moment in the seasonal cycle of Lake Ontario. The design is inspired by a sailing experience one of our Landscape Architects, Amanda Berry, had while racing on Lake Ontario. A violent rain and lightning storm suddenly appeared. The 3D lightning bolt combined with “concrete waves” and a spiral of tall grasses are meant to portray movement of water and sails as the viewer walks around, without having actual moving parts.
