Spacing is proud to be the media partner for the City of Vancouver’s Robson Redux.
VIVA Vancouver — the City of Vancouver’s public space program that specializes in turning road spaces into people places — is seeking unique designs to transform an iconic block in downtown Vancouver into a temporary summertime plaza for pedestrians for the summer of 2014.
A single winning team will be selected to design, build, and install a temporary public space installation this summer. This year’s theme is connection: people’s connection to one another and people’s connection to the space.
WHO CAN ENTER: This is an open competition; anyone may enter. However, the competition criteria and submission requirements lend themselves to expertise in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, industrial design and other related fields.
