Well coming across these a few years ago...I was rather intrigued at the art not knowing the purpose. Through a little research...I came to understand that the purpose was to cut down on the wind tunnelling on Stephen Ave. I am not sure if they do the job.....but that being said....they are creative, artistic and have a purpose. Congrat's of... More

These are cool sculptures but you're not missing out on anything earth-shattering if you skip this attraction.

On the way there or on the way back, it's great to stroll on this section of the mall underneath these gigantic Galleria Trees. Although interesting to look at, they are actually designed to reduce the wind... More

These stylized trees sculptures are visible in Stephen Avenue and inside the +15 skywalk. It is really interesting, specially in the evening, when they are illuminated with color changing patterns.

It looks great at night, too bad there's nobody downtown on Stephen Ave. after 6 pm to enjoy them. And during the day they look dated and out of place.

These are great to see any time of year, but are best at night when they are lit up and changing colors.
