Okay, all you people who love to trash Vancouver. “It’s not so world class,” you say. Every time I (or anyone else) ever writes a story suggesting there’s anything admirable about Vancouver, the naysayers come out in force to say we’re deluded and that the whole city is just a bad condo marketers’ power point.
This is your chance to make suggestions on how it can be made into that hipper or more jazzy or greater city you’re all longing for. The City of Vancouver and the Architectural Institute are holding a competition for ideas “to shift Vancouver’s face and form.” You can read about it here. Sharpen your mechanical pencils now.
