The project outlines a community centre in Vancouver where art, nature, and community unite to provide a place where people can be connected to nature. Through the project, the edges between architecture and nature become invisible and intertwined.
The concept of “Urban Hiking” is incorporated in the design as people can freely and comfortably experience the greening programme as if they were hiking in a natural environment - without the limitations and concerns set by the weather, outdoor safety, and time. This concept leads to the most direct way to energise the social and environmental ecologies of the city as well as its people.
