 Condon_Hein_SALA_SCARP

Get ready for an evening of big picture thinking!  Tomorrow night, the Vancouver Public Space Network (VPSN) is pleased to host a special presentation by Urban Designer Scot Hein, UBC Professor Patrick Condon, and a crack team of graduate students at UBC’s School for Landscape Architecture (SALA) andSchoolof Communityand Regional Planning (SCARP).  Together, the group conducted a workshop in the Fall of 2010 that sought to create a transformational plan for the future ofVancouver.   

The result is a radical vision for the future that accounts for big demographic changes, a massive reduction in greenhouse gases, the utilization of district energy systems, efficient transit networking, habitat and open-space linkages and the best practices of urbanism as currently understood. This is a session that will be of interest to city-lovers of all stripes. 

The event takes tomorrow, Tuesday, May 17 at Kitsilano Neighbourhood House (West 7th and Vine) at 7:00pm. Snacks will be served. The presentation will be followed by an update on current VPSN projects and activities.
