Trevor Boddy: Learning From... Vancouverism and Its Discontents
00:00:00
00:00:00

An overemphasis on residential development at the cost of office space has led to an unprecedented suburbanisation of Vancouver’s downtown core. In Vancouverism and Its Discontents Trevor Boddy examines the city’s influential model of high-density housing combined with green space almost 20 years after its radical redevelopment plan.

Trevor Boddy is a critic, curator and historian of architecture and consulting urban designer based in Vancouver. His lecture offers a contemporary reading of the coastal city’s unique urban and geographical situation and the issues at stake for shaping its future.

This lecture is part of the Learning from… series.
