The bench project was designed by 67 students from LCI’s CyberARTS, Sculpture, English and ESL programs in 2011/12 under the facilitation of designers and artists from STEPS Initiative and ArchiTEXT. Through facilitated workshops, students explored themes of public space and functional art, and learnt the process of producing 3D work. The final bench was produced by internationally recognized Eventscape and was installed on LCI property (350 Kipling Avenue) on April of 2014.

Unique creative partnerships like these allow students to grow outside the classroom walls. Designed by students and built for the community, we invite you to stop by an have a seat on this amazing piece of public sculpture!

“This project made me think in a different way, to understand how things are designed, what they are designed for and how they are used.”LCI student participant
