Five Corners is a new public space located in the centre of oldest neighbourhood of Saskatoon. The intervention is a series of
five folded steel markers that echo the shape of an infamous intersection of five street that once converged on the site. The placement of the markers formalize the existing desire lines created by pedestrians who traverse the site. The steel is perforated with a pattern of “eyes” which are inspired by the bark pattern of the native white birch tree. The soft landscaping includes a bed of native long grasses planted behind each marker.
