REGIONAL DESIGN CHARRETTE
The charrette had over 120 participants, including delegates from AIBC/RAIC; PIBC/CIP; and BCSLA/CSLA, plus Vancouver area stakeholders and urbanists.
For six hours,
the participants had to design the region to accomodate a doubling
and aging population [see
bulletins] with sustainable design principles.
This design charrette also intersected with UN World Urban Forum proceedings (June 18-23, 2006) and was one of many 'Super Saturday' events being organized by the City Building Planners Group. The charrette's resulting giant map was later exhibited at the World Urban Forum. See image gallery.
