Rooted in the community and reaching for the sky, giant flowers bloom with knowledge and provide many chances for transformation. The artwork provides many subjects of studies hidden in the design and invites interpretation. What do you see?

The sculpture celebrates the school mission to be a space for the student to blossom and keep roots in the community.

Nature and culture are the theme represented on giant flowers and invite students to discover multiple symbols.

The garden of knowledge consists of 3 structures. Each structure is composed of three giant metal flowers adorned with butterfly students.

One butterfly has computer elements, another has a welcome message for P.K.Yonge students in english and spanish, and the last ones is adorned with math formulas:

Pythagorean theorem a^2 + b^2 = c^2
Mysteries of infinity 1 = 0.999999999…
Euler’s formula e^{i\pi }+1=0
Einstein’s Relativity E = mc^2
Math joke (I Ate Some Pie) √-1 2^3 ∑
