The PIBC South Coast Chapter, in partnership with the Vancouver Public Space Network, is pleased to host the second annual World Town Planning Day film and panel discussion night as an opportunity to promote understanding and awareness of planners and the planning profession to local communities and all levels of government.

Infinite Happiness: Film Screening And Panel Discussion

In celebration of World Town Planning Day, join the Planning Institute of BC’s South Coast Chapter and Vancouver Public Space Network for a film screening and panel discussion of The Infinite Happiness.

The Infinite Happiness is a personal video diary shot entirely in Copenhagen’s “8 House” designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), following a group of residents as they experience life in a contemporary housing block that was designed to be ideal housing for all families. “The film constructs a collection of life stories all interconnected through their personal relationships with the building (drawing) the lines of a human map, which allows the viewer to discover the building through an internal and intimate point of view – all while questioning the architecture’s ability to create collective happiness.”

Panelists include:

  • Ian McDonald, Architect/Housing Innovations – Carscadden Architects
  • Keltie Craig MCIP, RPP, Social Planner– City of Vancouver
  • Stephanie Williams, General Manager – Better Environmentally Sound Transportation
  • One more panelist to be confirmed
