I am flattered to be invited to participate in this...I'm sure there will be lots of room if you're downtown Thursday around noon...
First Thursday City Conversation: City of Glass Forever?
May 31, 2012
New building types for Vancouver
Thursday, June 7
Time: 12:30-1:30 pm
Place: Room 1600, Harbour Centre, 515 West Hastings St.
Vancouver’s picture-postcard look is of slender, glassy residential towers framed by water and mountains. Is that 25 year-old style now overdone? Does the city require different architectural types? The mid-rise character of Olympic Village is a first response to those concerns. But what else should Vancouver’s new buildings look like, and where should they be built? Share your ideas in a City Conversation about Vancouver’s next look and feel with architect-developer Michael Geller; Bruce Haden, a principal of the prominent firm DIALOG; and UBC professor Patrick Condon.
