DIALOG was the architect and coordinating professional for three stations on the 19-kilometre rapid transit line from downtown Vancouver to YVR airport: Langara, Oakridge, and King Edward. We were also instrumental in developing an appropriate architectural response for the entire 16-station Canada Line system, including sourcing and defining a suitable materials palette and establishing the direction for the design of various building systems.
