Transformations

BY SENG TSOI
@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Looking back, it's easy to see a connective thread, the mix of efforts and experiences that have brought me here today. This presentation traces back through 20 years of creative work, conceived within the space of numerous disciplines, and made with a wide range of mediums. Each project, however different, all share a belief that even in unexpected places, with the most modest means, there is something special to be made.

Mass Timber: Changing the Way We Build Our Cities

BY ROBERT JACKSON
@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Mass timber is really the newest way to build a building in over 100 years. Thanks to new manufacturing technologies, these massive blocks of wood are allowing engineers to push the limits of what timber can do as a structural material. I’ll be sharing my experiences of working and designing with timber, why I’m inspired by it, and how it’s changing the way we build our cities.

Visual Tectonics

BY MICHAEL ELKAN
@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Photography and architecture are very closely related. It is through photographic images that architecture is widely seen, known and understood. Architects think in space-time dimensions but usually employ 2D media to develop their ideas. Architecture is truly experienced only in real space, time and scale. The photographer’s task is to reverse engineer that reality through acute observation and to construct a relatively small 2D image that begins to evoke the experience of being there.

Life Between Umbrellas: Designing a Rain-Friendly City

BY ANDREW PASK
@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Public spaces – the parks, plazas, and streets that comprise half of Vancouver’s land-base – are the connective tissue that ties the city together. Public space is a canvas for urban life – a stage for social and cultural activities, a marketplace of local economic activity, a forum for democratic engagement. And yet, for much of the year, our spaces are challenged by rain and inclement weather. With even heavier rains in the future, how can we ensure that Vancouver’s public spaces remain vibrant people places all year round?
