Business to Arts Award

2007


Business to Arts honored Harcourt for an unprecedented third time with the prestigious Judges’ Special Recognition Award for Whitelight Garden - a two-acre sculpture garden at Park West.

Seven years in the making, Whitelight Garden is the centrepiece to the residential quarter on campus. Artist Vivienne Roche used a variety of materials and forms, as well as modern technology, to create her most ambitious work to date.

By day, it is a public park with seating areas, pathways and a running track around the perimeter. By night it becomes a light sculpture, reflecting and defining various archaeological and astronomical themes.

Harcourt’s philosophy is to integrate cultural and artistic elements in all of its developments. The inclusion of the visual arts, paintings & sculptures in Park West enhances the working & living environment and stimulates discussion and appreciation of art and culture for all.
