Beach Towers by CBK Van Norman

The RAIC and Museum Of Vancouver present the first installment of the new Architecture & the City series with guest speaker Donald Luxton. Guided by the series’ theme, Tall Vancouver Buildings, this talk will focus on two projects: Beach Towers by CBK Van Norman, and the Electra by Thompson Berwick Pratt.

The series is part of a larger micro-exhibition project set to launch in early 2022. This exhibit will showcase the immediate past, present, and future of the residential tall building in Vancouver with discussions of how this building typology might provide a way out of the city’s affordable housing crisis.

The talks and exhibition will include presentations by some of the leading architects and planners who have helped to shape Vancouver’s skyline.
