Development is nothing new in this town, but the plethora of architectural statement pieces slated for construction right now is going to redene the urban landscape.
Parq Vancouver Architect: IBI Group
The design: The giant “urban resort” houses a casino, eight restaurants, two luxury hotels and 60,000 square feet of meeting space—but from the outside, all we see is glittering copper siding. Expected completion: Fall 2017
Vancouver House Architect: Bjarke Ingels Group
The design: The twisting glass residential tower rises out of a modern, angular greenroofed living complex. Ingels describes it as “gesamtkunstwerk”: a total work of art. Expected completion: 2018
