Engineering Artist-In-Residence: Germaine Koh

Engineering Artist-In-Residence: first term

Germaine Koh, an internationally active, Vancouver-based artist, is our first-ever Engineering Artist-In-Residence.

Koh works collaboratively with our team to explore the work of Engineering Services with a specific focus on opportunities for public art within our operations, facilities, and capital construction projects.

Public art, as a form of civic dialogue and a way to connect with a city, goes hand-in-hand with Engineering Services’ work. The engineering systems that form the backbone of our city connect us in many often unseen ways. The goal of this program is to bring those connections to the forefront of our minds and our communities and celebrate part of what makes our city great.
