The cauldron is located on the west side of the International Broadcast Centre at Jack Poole Plaza at Canada Place. The location offers a scenic backdrop that includes a floating set of Olympic rings off Stanley Park in Coal Harbour and the North Shore mountains in the distance.
The plaza is officially dedicated in memory of Jack Poole; the founding chairman of VANOC’s board of directors. Poole passed away in October 2009 just hours after the Olympic Flame was lit in Greece signaling the start of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay.
The Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) designed and fabricated the cauldron.
