Industrial Revolution: The Design and Influence of Granville Island (Video)

In the early 1970s the Canadian government funded a project to redevelop a key portion of Vancouver’s industrial waterfront. The radical designs of DIALOG architects Norm Hotson and Joost Bakker challenged all convention and in doing so helped create one of the most influential places and beloved mixed-use neighbourhoods in Canada. Granville Island Market opened to the public in 1979, completing its transformation from a long-time industrial site. It is now one of the most visited places in Canada with approximately 12 million visitors per year and is recognized as one of the top public places in the world by the Project for Public Spaces.
