Gaslight Square Comes to life with help from our friends.

We have always loved the interactive art found on the streets of Montreal - especially the illuminated musical swings. It is known around the world and bring smiles to everyone’s faces. We’ve decided to bring that level of world class excitement to Gaslight Square. HIP is working with Daily Tous Les Jours, the Montreal based interaction design studio responsible for the swings and so much more. Daily will be creating a permanent outdoor experience at Gaslight Square designed to help us connect with, and be part of, the stories in our Grand River. We can’t imagine, and can’t wait, to see what they’ll do. To hold you over, have a look at “Hello Trees” created for Houston Texas. Photography by Morris Malakoff

Artist Philip Beesley at Gaslight District

Philip Beesley

We believe that dreaming is part of living. It shapes creative, confident lives and vibrant communities. That is why HIP Developments has contracted University of Waterloo faculty member Philip Beesley to create a permanent art installation, coming in the spring of 2019 at Gaslight Square in Cambridge.
