Vancouver House is a collaboration between DIALOG and Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). This neighbourhood-scaled project is comprised of four highly crafted buildings at the north end of the Granville Bridge. The project's iconic tower dramatically unfolds from a mixed-use urban village under the bridge. This new neighbourhood is comprised of three intimately-scaled triangular buildings that provide spaces for working, shopping, and leisure. The tower gains its form in response to site constraints, shape shifting from a triangle at its base to a rectangle 500' above the bridge. A central cathedral-like urban realm below the bridge offers ample opportunity for a variety of uses and public events.
There was something drawing me to this project. I had to try it, and I had to convince others that it was doable. For me, it’s been transformational. Absolutely transformational.Vance Harris, Principal Architect
