Symphony Place and its parking garage are located next to Vancouver’s Symphony Hall. Cadenza embellishes the façade of the parking garage with three-dimensional suspended coloured glass elements. The rhythm of the undulating glass, emphasized by the subtle colouring, can be seen as a visual representation of the structure of cadenzas in music.
