Re:CONNECT - Visualizing the Viaducts
Vancouver, British Columbia
Downtown Vancouver’s Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts, functional remnants of an abandoned plan for a downtown freeway, have been reconsidered in PWL’s award-winning submission for the City’s Re:CONNECT design competition.
In collaboration with Dialog, Beasley & Associates, and Jim Green & Associates, our submission -Viaducts = Parks + envisions connections between eastside and downtown neighbourhoods being enhanced by removing the viaducts and replacing them with a series of extensive green spaces, efficient and elegant multi-modal transportation routes, and a range of cultural facilities.
Our submission earned both an Award of Merit and People’s Choice Award in the Visualizing the Viaducts category, and we are excited to have contributed our ideas to the ongoing planning of the False Creek Flats neighbourhood.
