World renowned Vancouver artist Douglas Coupland is creating a new large public art piece to go along with a new development at Marine Drive and Cambie Street in South Vancouver. 

The giant 13-metre art sculpture dubbed the Golden Tree will be a replica of the famous 800-year old “Hollow Tree” in Stanley Park. Its “golden” replica will be built from steel-reinforced resin and fiberglass.

Coupland’s public art piece will be placed at the the entrance of MC2 Living, a condo complex development by Intracorp at the intersection across the street from Marine Gateway and the Canada Line’s Marine Drive Station. Both MC2 and Marine Gateway are currently under construction and are among the largest development projects in the immediate vicinity.
