Museum of Vancouver (MOV), in partnership with Architecture Canada, Metro Vancouver Chapter – Built City Speaker Series: Charting Progress from Green City to Eco City
MOV’s Built City speaker series, in partnership with Architecture Canada, Metro Vancouver Chapter, returns with a stellar panel tackling the issues of Ecocities.
Dr. Jennie Moore, Associate Dean of Building Design and Construction Technology at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) is joined by Javier Campos, founder of Campos Studio and Max Richter, project architect and co-Director of Materials Perfomance Lab at Perkins+Will to discuss the nuances of the Ecocity Framework. Comprised of 15 standards in four categories – urban design, bio-geophysical features, socio-cultural features, and ecological imperatives – the Ecocities Framework is a diagnostic tool to measure a city’s progress towards becoming an Ecocity. Designed for a wide range of users, the Framework charts a city’s steps forward, from existing conditions to “threshold” Ecocity standards, and beyond.
Guest biologist – and Vancouver City Councillor – Heather Deal will facilitate the discussion and field questions/comments from the audience for our presenters.
