Robson Redux: Help pick the best design for Robson Square
Robson Square is about to come alive once again. For the fifth year running, the city’s pre-eminent public gathering place will be expanded over the summer months – fully pedestrianized and animated courtesy of an as-yet-unselected design intervention.
You can help with the process! This is the second year that the City has held a competition – Robson Redux – to select the winning design, and the jury-based selection will be informed by a people’s choice voting process.
According to organizers, over 80 design submissions were received from around the world for this year’s contest. They’re going to be on display at the Museum of Vancouver for two weeks between February 28 and March 15, and you can cast a ballot for your favourite entry. The Robson Redux exhibition is included in the cost of regular admission to the Museum.
There’s lots of interest in this initiative, so be sure to mark your calendars and check it out. For the enthusiasts: a launch event on March 6 is already sold out and running a waitlist. There’s also a public talk on the design competition by the City’s Scott Edwards on March 5.
