"Start an Evolution"Donor Recognition

This interactive light installation located at the heart of the University of British Columbia, provides a colorful expression of thanks to the over 4,000 donors to the University's "start an evolution" fundraising campaign, which raised an unprecedented two billion dollars.

The University asked PUBLIC: Architecture + Communication to design an engaging, permanent and timeless outdoor feature that would give thanks to the donors to their recent "start an evolution" fundraising campaign. The brief was to create anything but a typical donor wall.
