Vancouver is continuing to make their city that much more appealing to not only their citizens but also to tourists. Their doing this through the much needed new Art Gallery in the core of the city. This new art gallery is being redesigned with multiple layers. All layers will be a different size, giving an odd but appealing architectural design that everybody can enjoy.
This new art gallery is slated to be located at West Georgia & Cambie within Downtown Vancouver. This building will stand two hundred and thirty feet tall, having a total accumulated space of 310,000 square feet in the process. Currently the space where this new art gallery will be built is a parking lot for the Queen Elizabeth Plaza.
These efforts are clearly being made in order to make Downtown Vancouver a site to see & behold. This new art gallery would also have the architect & his team create a path that would lead from the art gallery to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre to the Rogers Arena and finally to BC Place. This would spread major life into the heart of downtown which is why this proposed idea is going through and will more than likely be completed in three years’ time.
The City of Vancouver announced that they’ve donated the parking lot space to the old art gallery & have already provided a large portion of the funding for the new building. Swiss Architects De Meuron & Herzog will be designing this new art gallery.
