07 VANCOUVER TOW­ER­ING AM­BI­TION

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

Kengo Kuma has un­veiled plans for Al­berni by Kuma, his first North Amer­i­can, large-scale res­i­den­tial tower. The 43-storey struc­ture will be lo­cated near the en­trance to Vancouver’s famed Stan­ley Park. Kuma de­scribed the scoops out of the build­ing vol­ume as “de­duc­tions”, which also cre­ate a con­nec­tion to the ground and a Ja­panese moss gar­den. The tower will be home to 181 res­i­den­tial units with pa­tio spa­ces and will be clad in an­odised alu­minium and glass, en­abling it to re­flect the sky and neigh­bour­ing build­ings. The mixed-use de­vel­op­ment also in­cludes a re­tail space and restau­rant, along with six lev­els of un­der­ground park­ing.
