Visualizing the Viaducts - Submission #93
Let's be green and creative. The top of the viaduct is now a greenway, playground, community gardens; the underneath is a bustling, lively village, filled with artist studios, rehearsal spaces, cafés and shops as well as low-income housing. Recycling an outdated structure in a sustainable, liveable and fun community is thinking out of the box. It has been successfully done in Paris and NYC... why not in Vancouver?
