Architecture Against Ambivalence

According to Johanna Hurme, founding partner of Winnipeg’s internationally acclaimed 5468796 architecture, we cannot afford to litter our world with mediocre and disposable architecture. We need to recognize that the difference between the good and the bad is long-term vision, intelligence and care—not the price tag.

Redefining Northwest Coast Art in Public Spaces

A strong attachment to nature and quest to live in balance stems from the First Nations’ ways of being and living life. These ways are what guide many First Nations’ artists and are reflected in their artwork which exhibits an intricacy of detail and richness of iconographic language.

While Vancouver has made important strides as a cycling city in the past few years, some argue these projects have been too modest to disrupt the hegemony the car still enjoys on our streets. What are the bold policy decisions needed to move cycling past a single-digit mode share, and into the same arena as cities like Amsterdam and Copenhagen?
