Great news! As a former Vancouverite, I love wooden buildings.

I just hope they don't over-emphasize the wood, like Vancouver's new art gallery -- it just won't fit in.

Doubt there is the budget like the new VAG - cite the source please.

Forget the UBC project - the Prince George UNBC Wood Innovation and Design Centre is probably a more appropriate comparator.

I'm filming The Arbour design competition announcements at the GBC Waterfront Campus on Mar 27th 6:30 PM,. If any UTers are attending, it'd be good to meet up.
Are they announcing the winner or just presenting finalists?

What on god's green are TF and Shigeru Ban doing in the same competition? I imagine they'd be just AoR to Provencher Roy, but sweet heavens I hope they get nowhere near this.

I love Shigeru Ban, that would be my pick. Maybe we can start a vote on this thread as we did with the Etobicoke City Hall thread? Mods, any interest?
