Infinite Happiness

Join us along with the Planning Institute of British Columbia to celebrate World Town Planning Day (WTPD) for a fun evening of inspiration and thoughtful discussion!

World Town Planning Day (WTPD)! is an international day celebrating the accomplishments of professional planners and their contributions to their communities. On November 8, planners in more than 30 countries participate in World Town Planning Day activities annually, a practice that began in 1949.

To mark the occasion, the Vancouver Public Space Network is partnering with the Planning Institute of British Columbia, South Coast Chapter, to host the second annual World Town Planning Day film and panel discussion night as an opportunity to promote understanding and awareness of planners and the planning profession to local communities and all levels of government.

Who: PIBC South Coast Chapter with the Vancouver Public Space Network
Where: Rio Theatre, 1660 East Broadway, Vancouver
When: Thursday November 9th, 2017 (one day following official WTPD date)

  • Doors and reception 6:00 pm
  • Film and Panel Discussion 7:00 – 9:30 pm

Tickets: Online or at the door (see below).

The Infinite Happiness is a personal video diary shot entirely in Copenhagen’s “8 House” designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), following a group of residents as they experience life in a contemporary housing block that was designed to be ideal housing for all families. “The film constructs a collection of life stories all interconnected through their personal relationships with the building (drawing) the lines of a human map, which allows the viewer to discover the building through an internal and intimate point of view – all while questioning the architecture’s ability to create collective happiness.”

Panelists include:

  • Ian McDonald, Architect/Housing Innovations – Carscadden Architects
  • Keltie Craig MCIP, RPP, Social Planner– City of Vancouver
  • Stephanie Williams, General Manager – Better Environmentally Sound Transportation
  • Ericka Stephens-Rennie, Co-founder and Resident – Vancouver Co-Housing
