These ten large, white, stylized, structural steel sculptures on the Stephen Avenue Walk were both whimsical and photogenic! Some were 26 m tall; others were 21 m tall. They were designed to baffle wind gusts, but they looked a lot like windsocks catching the air...More

When perusing Stephen's Avenue, this is another stop that you can make. It is very popular with tourists and you often see people taking photos of it. Located in front of Banker's Hall it is also the entrance to downtown shopping and the Devonian Gardens.

Such a beautiful and diverse city with such amazing designs...not a piece of concrete or design in this gorgeous city is "plainly" sculptured.

These sculptures are certainly impressive, located, as they are, at the end of the pleasant pedestrian-friendly Stephen Avenue (8th avenue south). Worth a visit.

We were staying downtown for a couple of nights, and I began to notice how often you can catch a glimpse of these from within the downtown core. They are beautiful from any distance! Even from the Calgary Tower!
