Tall Vancouver Tales, featuring Donald Luxton

  • When: November 9th, 2021   7:00 – 8:30
  • Where: The Museum of Vancouver
  • Tickets:  $15

Join the RAIC and Museum of Vancouver this fall for the first installment of the new Architecture & the City Series with guest speaker Donald Luxton. Guided by the series’ theme, Tall Vancouver Buildings, this talk will focus on two projects in particular – Beach Towers by C.B.K. Van Norman, and the Electra by Thompson Berwick Pratt, and is entitled Go Big or Go Home: How Vancouver Grew Up.

This series is part of a larger micro-exhibition project set to launch in early 2022, which will showcase the immediate past, present, and future of the tall residential building in Vancouver. With this building form contributing to the city’s unique urbanity, discussions of how this building typology might provide a way out of our affordable housing crisis will be one of several topics to be explored, with presentations by some of the leading architects and planners who have helped to shape Vancouver’s skyline.

Tickets for the first talk on November 9th are on sale now for $15, with three more talks still to be announced over the course of 2022. As well, this first talk in the series will also coincide with the annual conference of the Council for Tall Buildings & Urban Habitats (CTBUH), entitled The Future City: Addressing Carbon, Climate, and Societal Crisis.
