As a lead project designer and project manager, NAVAGRAH provided his expertise from design to completion of this project. Drawing on the imagery of the native prairie landscape of aspen groves and grasslands and in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the City of Calgary Parks, the installation symbolizes 100 trunks of aspen trees nestled in grassland. The 100 trunks represent 100 great public spaces developed by Calgary Parks in the last century. The 100 trunks are organized in modules of 10, where each group of 10 indicates a time span of 10 years. The heights of the trunks increase incrementally with each decade, representing the passage of time and growth of the City of Calgary between 1911 to 2010.
