Join Gordon Price, Director of the City Program at SFU, for a planning tour of Vancouver’s West End. The West end reveals about eight different architectural stages, from fine wooden mansions to functional wooden walk-ups, not to mention more highrise towers than any other neighbourhood in Canada. But how did it all come about – and why?
Gordon Price explains some of the planning theory and trends that shaped the West End – and some of the lessons to be learned.
Time: 10am to 12pm
