Text description provided by the architects. An installation in the newest location of Vancouver Circus School, the project was conceived as backdrop to the spectacular circus events. The use of standard dimensional lumber forms a playful take on the archetypal “circus tent” that houses the Circus’ office function. A long linear line of plywood makes up an array of seating and cubby storage, and a playground slide marks the entrance to the Circus School for kids only.

The interior architecture creates a place to work, a place to play and a place to watch the fanciful acrobatics. “Stick Forest” forms a guardrail behind the seating area, while evoking the landscape art installation beyond. A field of yellow juggling balls fills the walls of the circus office tent, mimicking the sense of play and wonder inherent in the School itself.
