Société de développement commercial - SDC du Village
|What better than 170,000 pink balls suspended high in the air to enliven Montreal’s Sainte-Catherine Street East as it transforms for the summer into a pedestrian mall? The plastic balls, in three different sizes and five subtle shades of pink, are strung together with bracing wire, crisscrossing the street and stretching through tree branches at varying heights. Not only is the visual impact delightful, but the artificial pink foliage modulates and plays with the light as pedestrians amble the length of the installation, which extends a full 1 kilometres between St-Hubert and Papineau Streets.
Pink balls, designed as part of Aires Libres, is sure to keep all who stroll through the Village this summer…in the pink!
