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?
