The Iconic entrance sculpture for the Mirvac office tower is symbolic of the tree that was felled at this site in 1829 to commemorate the Foundation of Perth. The tree acts as a source of knowledge of Perth’s shared cultural and historical identity and stands as a symbol for the cyclic patterns of regeneration and revitalisation taking place on this site.
The sculpture is characterized by the buttressed interweaving of stainless steel tubes, which rise lineally as a contemporary expression of an ancient tree form.
At pavement level the trifurcated sculpture girths an eccentric reference to the geographical significance of this site overlaying an engraved end grain detail signifying the location where the tree was felled to mark Perth’s Foundation.
