Upcycled Urbanism


Please join us on March 3rd as VPSN partners with the Museum of Vancouver, Spacing Magazine and UBC’s School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture to bring you an exciting series of events on public space design:

Designing Together
The first workshop in the Museum of Vancouver (MOV)’s Upcycled Urbanism series

2:00PM – 4:00PM @ MOV (1100 Chestnut St)

This kickoff event focuses on how to hold a design charrette: a fun, engaging, and inclusive workshop in which experts and community members work together to turn their ideas into pictures and plans. If you’ve ever wanted to get people together to work on a new idea for your neighbourhood or your city, then this workshop can give you the tools. With guidance from the Vancouver Design Nerds, we’ll brainstorm how to bring an underutilized public space to life.

Bonus: Sneak peak of spectacular Upcycled Urbanism building block designs created by students of UBC’s School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture.
