Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver opens its new campus. The 92-year-old institution relocates to a purpose-built facility designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects on the east side of downtown. This 26,700-sqm (290,000 sf) landmark building anchors regeneration of an industrial zone.
Design: Paul Sangha Landscape Architecture. The abstracted shape of the corten, in conjunction with strategic boulder placement along the foreshore played an integral role in dissipating wave energy and ultimately, facilitating the deposition of sand to enhance foreshore and create habitat for flora and fauna.
Design: Henriquez Partners Architects. The development features a 22-storey signature office tower in Vancouver BC, the first building in Canada built to have achieved the 2009 Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Platinum standard and a 47-storey residential tower targeting LEED Gold standard.
Architect: Arthur Erickson – as a young architect Arthur Erickson had an office in The Fairview neighbourhood of Vancouver British Columbia. It was in a building, which also housed Purdy’s Chocolates. So it was not surprising when many years later he had the opportunity to design a triplex in the same area he called it “Choklit”.
