Paradise Building: The Challenges of Today’s Vancouver

January 27, 2008
by Canadian Architect

Part of the SFU City Program, this public lecture takes place on Friday, February 1st at 7:00pm at the SFU Harbour Centre in Vancouver.

While Vancouver’s urban design generally gets high praise, many are critical of its architecture. Where, they ask, are the iconic buildings? Why do our highrises all look the same? To discuss this, Vancouver’s Director of Planning, Brent Toderian, architecture critic Trevor Boddy and others will address the nature of contemporary urban design. Also up for discussion is the process by which the City deals with design in the public realm.

Admission is free, but reservations are required.
