City of Vancouver’s Urban Design Studio: Waterfront Evolution

January 14, 2013 at 12:33 pm Leave a comment

The SFU City Program is hosting this presentation produced by the City of Vancouver’s Urban Design Studio on its “Resources” site in order to ensure it gets wider distribution:



It was originally given at The Waterfront Center’s Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. in 2012 to celebrate their 25 years of recognizing design excellence and advocacy for urban waterfronts.

The presentation was conceived as a “virtual bike tour” of Vancouver’s waterfront achievements as the City has been fortunate to receive numerous awards from the Centre including, most recently, the Southeast False Creek Public Realm.



It takes you page by page from Kitsilano to the Downtown East Side along the seawall, showing the major urban-design achievements over the last decade or so – clear, comprehensive, beautifully laid out.
