Featured event: Robson Redux Design Comp – Info Session
Interested in putting your placemaking skills to work? How about crafting the summertime transformation of the 800-block of Robson!
For the second year in a row, the City of Vancouver is holding a design competition to support the seasonal activation of the block between Hornby and Howe. The aim is to improve and expand the already popular Robson Square area, fully pedestrianizing this important public space, and animating it for residents and visitors alike.
If you’re interested in working on a design, you may want to check out the Information Session that the City is hosting on Monday, January 12.
Join VIVA Vancouver for an inspiring information session on how to get your design concept noticed by the judges. Learn about a few changes we’ve made to the design brief and meet last year’s winning team and hear about their experiences. Don’t have a full team yet? No problem! The event will provide an opportunity for designers and artists to meet and mingle.
The Info Session takes place 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The event is free, but to help with planning, the City is asking folks to register.
While you’re at it, you may also want to check out the vivadesigncomp.ca webpage – where you can find the design brief, as well as information on the submission process (including all important deadlines).
