Here is an image of the giant orca presently being constructed at Jack Poole Plaza adjacent to the Vancouver Convention Centre. Since the original post featured a grainy cell phone photo, I decided to update it with a couple I found on Flickr.

Although it may look like LEGO is sponsoring the construction of the orca, I’ve heard that this was constructed either for the Canadian Video Game Awards in Vancouver (hence the pixelation) or will be a permanent fixture at Jack Poole Plaza. The piece of art is by Douglas Coupland.
