September 29th – The Drop

The Drop

The Drop is an 18m tall steel and polyurethane sculpture on Vancouver’s foreshore. Created by German collective Inges Idee, it reflects Vancouver’s connection with water and the power of nature.

It doesn’t take long to realise how dependent Vancouver is with its waterways, with a single glance you’ll take in passenger ships, sea planes, container ships, and wall to wall pleasure-craft. Not to mention being a haven for sea life including whales and migratory salmon.

Ironically much of Canada is in drought, with Vancouver recently imposing hefty level 4 water restrictions across the city.

The Drop captures the sleek aerodynamic shape of a water droplet as makes contact with another surface. It’s one of Inges Idee’s many urban sculpture projects and is a drawcard in front of the convention centre and cafe’s.
