      It's one of the more audacious public-art projects ever proposed in Vancouver.

      Today, Vancouver city council is expected to vote on the Torqued Chandelier, which was designed by celebrated local artist Rodney Graham.

      If approved, it will be suspended beneath the Granville Bridge.

      There it will remain adjacent to Vancouver House, which is Westbank Projects' twisting 52-storey tower designed by starchitect Bjarke Ingels.

      According to Westbank, the chandelier will turn and rise slowly until once a day, it is released and descends to its original position above Beach Avenue.

      Council is also scheduled to vote on another elaborate public-art project: Martin Boyce's Hanging Lanterns.

      This lighting will illumate the lane east of Seymour Street next to Westbank's Telus Garden building.

      The alley beside Telus Garden will come alive, thanks to lanterns designed by Martin Boyce.
