A Guidebook to Contemporary Architecture in Vancouver
No current Talk conversations about this book.
A lively tour of Vancouver's finest and internationally acclaimed architecture from the past 20 years. Illustrated with 160 full-colour photographs and 40 architects' drawings, and accompanied by critical writings that position Vancouver in the broader context of urban development, this new book in the series takes readers on a visual tour of the city's most important recent design accomplishments. It evokes a generation of building that represents a period of unprecedented growth, beginning with Expo 86 and continuing through the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Drawing on the success of A Guidebook to Contemporary Architecture in Montreal, this book features buildings and public spaces grouped by areas, with maps so that a visitor can create walking tours, including downtown Vancouver, Richmond, the North Shore, Kitsilano, the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University. The convenient size and format, including an index, allows a visitor to put this guidebook in a pocket and go.
