Titled Energy Alignment Sculpture, Pyramid in the Golden Section,, the blue tubular steel pyramid in the academic quadrangle is minimal art by California sculptor Bridge Beardslee. A 20th-century movement, minimalism reduces art to its most essential form, using as few shapes, colours and materials as possible. The same proportions as the Cheops pyramid in Egypt, Beardslee's piece is 16 feet at the base and 10 feet high. It was originally part of a project called Documenting a Power Line commissioned by the Vancouver Art Gallery and the B.C. Cultural Fund and was donated by Ian Davidson in 1977.
