UBC students of architecture and planning band together to envision Vancouver of the future


Fourteen UBC students studying architecture and planning have been working on a project that projects Vancouver into the future – 2050 to be precise, and asks the question what would Vancouver, as a sustainable city look like? The students have taken into account a number of factors including population growth, an aging demographic, migration and birth patterns, and energy consumption. Over the next six weeks the Tyee will publish the results of their findings/musings on a city that hopes to be “the greenest city.”
