Design with Community Impact.


5468796 Architecture [Canada] and Factor Eficiencia [México] with Studio NYL Structural Engineers [USA] are thrilled to present One Bucket at a Time, a unique and exciting public installation that weaves together thousands of common 5-gallon painters’ buckets to form two giant waves.

A place for people to gather and play, One Bucket at a Time is doubling its impact with an innovative community initiative: visitors to the installation are invited to “fill the wave” of buckets through individual donations of $20.

Arriving in Canada empty, each bucket used to construct the project will leave for Mexico filled with Canadian generosity, with all proceeds to be given to Ayuda y Solidaridad con las Niñas de la Calle, a Mexican orphanage for at-risk girls and young women located in Mexico City.
