  • Keeping the stoke alive: The grand opening of Charlie Bowins Skatepark - Spacing Ottawa
    of local residents In this the Ottawa Skateboard Community Association OSCA was formed with much support and advice from then Councillors Diane Holmes and Jan Harder The OSCA s efforts were led by Aaron Cayer a civil servant and owner of Antique Skate shop and graphic designer events co ordinator Meaghan Isaacs Being heavily involved in the city s music and arts scene meant Cayer and Isaacs were met with extraordinary support from local restaurants venues bands and artists from Ottawa and beyond The OSCA was amazed at how those connected to the skateboarding community especially in the downtown core had stepped up to contribute in whatever ways possible While Councillor Holmes s budget allocated 300 000 for Phase One of the design and construction of a new skatepark the OSCA raised an additional 200 000 for Phase Two of the park through their 1squarefoot campaign and the City of Ottawa s recognition of the downtown community s support for the project and the team s efforts Phase Two would be completed earlier this summer This park would not have been possible without the efforts of Antique Skate Shop Amidst all this positivity and success however the Ottawa skateboard community suffered a terrible unexpected loss last March when Charlie Bowins the park s namesake suffered a seizure in his sleep and passed away at the age of 27 Bowins was a familiar smiling face in the skateboard community having worked as camp counsellor at McNabb s indoor skatepark for nearly a decade as well as contributing to the fundraising and design of the yet unnamed skate park As news of the loss spread tributes poured in all over local media reiterating time and again that the community had lost an incredibly positive force and a kind inspiring mentor to skaters young and old OSCA s Meaghan Isaacs center offers a tribute to Charlie Bowins touching those who came to remember the park s namesake It was only natural then that the community would rally together in their grief and channel their energy into honouring Bowins by working to get the park named after him The OSCA began collecting letters of support for a commemorative naming application in the weeks after Bowins death and on June 10 th Councillor Catherine McKenney brought the motion to council The motion passed officially christening Charlie Bowins Skatepark After a brief ceremony on Saturday skaters of all ages took to the concrete encouraging each other and keeping an eye out for the littlest shredders Volunteer wardens from the skating community have already stepped up in keeping the park graffiti free out of respect for both the neighbourhood and the facilities they worked so hard to realize A park designed by skaters for skaters is amazing for the novices and professionals in the community but Charlie Bowins Skatepark will also be the base for summer skate camps and Thursday evening girls only sessions inspiring stoke in those new to the sport and thus carrying on its

  • Building the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension - Spacing Toronto
    buildings than concrete and steel supported modern excavations Unsupported trenches are hazardous for the people who work in them The TYSSE stations are being built using the cut and cover method First support for a deep excavation was built from the surface using piling machines then a big hole was excavated which is now being filled in with the station The construction of York University Station was about halfway back to ground surface when I visited Vaughan Metropolitan Centre is noticeably further ahead the underground station structure is complete and the surface has been re established On going construction at York University Station click to enlarge By nature of being works in progress both stations were a mix of temporary and permanent structure Steel props over a meter wide hold the excavation open at York University while steel reinforcement cages are placed and concrete is poured The construction of the station is a delicate dance between speed accuracy and the realities of construction materials Concrete the main material of both stations gets hot as it sets If too much is poured in one go the heat will cause cracking and permanent damage to the station A rough rule of thumb for subways is that 600 cubic metres can be poured at once While concrete looks hard shortly after pouring it takes a long time to become strong After 7 days concrete will have achieved about 75 of its strength and will be nearly full strength by 28 days This set time controls the rhythm of construction The upper parts of the stations can t be poured until the concrete underneath is strong enough to support it Along TYSSE much of concrete will be exposed in the final structure which raises an extra challenge aesthetic pouring requires particular care to avoid openings that will require structurally valid but unappealing repair patches David Urwin Construction Site Manager York University Station stands with a V column click to enlarge Large steel props hold the excavation open at York University Station click to enlarge Vaughan Metropolitan Station at 530 metres is the longest of the extension it will include a crossover so trains can turn around and tail tracks for storage When I visited they were getting ready at to carry out the biggest concrete pour in the history of Toronto Two thousand cubic metres of concrete were to be poured over 24 hours to form the main entrance of the station Hundreds of temporary supports were installed throughout the platform level to hold the weight of this massive pour A pour this size is well outside the standard and requires special preparation and construction techniques Among other complications mixed concrete will go bad in the truck and must be poured within a few hours of being prepared Achieving this on a big project requires detailed coordination between the construction site the mix plant and the drivers to make sure the concrete gets to site and is placed in its usable window Rendering of

  • Reclaiming Spaces/Places: Revealing a forgotten Indigenous visual narrative in Peterborough - Spacing National
    sculptural work combines traditional mediums such as bone and turquoise with discarded modern materials I take inspiration from the traditional ways that respectfully use all materials from mother earth and I seek to create objects that keep the stories alive motivate us to learn the culture and realize that Aboriginal people are not relics of an ancient past To explore these ideas further in his work I have chosen to highlight two public pieces that exemplify notions of reclamation resurgence and the importance of place Source www jimsonbowler com Big Loon Portage depicts the 5000 year old Anishinaabek Chemong story represented in a modern day setting This bus wrap in Peterborough was selected by Artspace as a part of their Art is Everywhere initiative Jimson s submission was selected from 22 artists to make its way through the city like a big canoe The canoe is one of the many iconic symbols of Peterborough and Canada at large but more than existing as a symbol encased in traditional history and locked away in a museum this piece creates a wonderfully layered metaphor as it navigates Peterborough s city streets The bus is transformed into a canoe its wheels the paddles its roads the rivers and its daily commute the larger migratory journey Big Loon Portage invites an intricate public discourse on the modes of transportation used across space and time while reflecting upon the sentiments of belonging and community The public transit of the Chemong story addresses the first theme mentioned above city as a narrative of time and place It does so by interjecting a highly visible traditional Indigenous world view on top of a classical Eurocentric depiction of landscape and into our modern colonial world This image travels through Peterborough sharing the story of the people who first inhabited the land while welcoming viewers of all backgrounds and beliefs to partake in the contemporary narrative I know of no other stronger image in this town than the canoe or a better way to honour the people than together Jimson Bowler Source www trentarthur ca The second example of his work that exists at the confluence of urban planning public art and Indigenous resurgence is the piece he calls Place at the End of the Rabbits a playful appropriation of Place at the End of the Rapids or Nogojiwanong in Anishinaabemowin He combines multiple paintings hung outdoors with petroglyph public art and artistic signage to commemorate and celebrate Anishinaabe perceptions of place This is particularly interesting from a heritage standpoint addressing the second thought hurdle mentioned above what we tend to view as significant at any moment in time Source www jimsonbowler com Now I know this is not a new topic and many municipalities and organizations struggle with determining what is historically significant how significant it is listed versus designated classification for example and how it shall be preserved or commemorated But to provoke some alternative streams of thought on this topic think about a history book The
