Vancouver, Eaton Centre

Although the idea for Metrotown was first expressed in the 1970s, the building itself opened in 1986 and was soon served by the Expo Line of the new SkyTrain system. In the ensuing twenty years, the complex developed into three distinct but adjoining malls - Metropolis at Metrotown, Metrotown Centre, and Station Square. Today, Eaton Centre, Metrotown serves as the city?s commercial and retail anchor. The mall also includes two large office towers, which by 2001 were home to the head offices for Shaw Cable and TransLink. http://www.heritageburnaby.ca/EN/main/research.html

Vancouver, Emily Carr School of Art

Folder consists of 6 photographic prints of the Emily Carr School of Art. The Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design is located on Granville Island, a highly successful urban precinct on the waterfront in the heart of Vancouver. The building context ranges from the small scale of single-story shops to the industrial scale of a concrete plant and the superscale of a major high-level bridge which spans over the island. The natural context of the waterfront adds a marine character to the island and the buildings which occupy it, which has both industrial and recreational dimensions.

The fundamental design problem for the building was an urban one. The building program required 60 000 square feet of studios and associated spaces, including a library and large lecture theatre, and 255 parking stalls located across the street from existing college facilities. Because subsurface conditions make building a parking garage entirely below grade impracticable, the fundamental problem was to position a college building on top of a three-story parking garage while at the same time addressing the varying scales and pedestrian-oriented character of Granville Island.

The disposition of the building volumes mediates the building?s bulk and the impact of the parking garage on the surrounding streets. The library is located at ground level, screening the garage and providing a public amenity at street level. The remaining program components are located above street level and grouped around a double-height glazed concourse space.

As is typical of construction on Granville Island, corrugated metal cladding is used for insulated walls, services are generally left exposed, and detailing is direct.

Architect: Patkau Architects / Toby Russell Buckwell and Partners.

Vancouver, BC Electric building

The Electra Building in Vancouver, British Columbia was built in 1957 as the new headquarters for the BC Electric Company, under its president Dal Grauer. A few days after Grauer's death in 1961, it became part of a new provincial crown corporation named BC Hydro. The 21 story, 89 m (293 ft), building was designed by architect, Ronald Thom. At the time it was claimed to be the tallest building in the Commonwealth, although this was not true. After BC Hydro moved to new offices in Vancouver and Burnaby in the late 1990s, the building was sold, and in 1998, was renovated and converted primarily into residential condo space.

Vancouver, East Asiatic Centre

The East Asiatic House, built in 1963 at 1201 West Pender Street in Vancouver was architect Gerald Hamilton's first largescale exercise in New Formalism. Hamilton broke away from the typical single slab tower, instead framing a low banking pavilion with two adjoining office blocks. Sculptural wall panels of white marble create a richly textured effect and seem to float above the emerald green arched columns of the ground floor. The building's raised podium allowed an intimate front courtyard several feet above street level, the sense of calm repose accentuated by extensive plantings, fountains, and the requisite abstract sculpture.

Vancouver, Hotel Europe

Hotel Europe is a six-story heritage building located at 43 Powell Street (at Alexander) in the Gastown area of Vancouver, British Columbia. The building was commissioned by hotelier Angelo Calori and built in 1908 - 1909 by Parr and Fee Architects. Situated on a triangular lot, the building is designed in the flatiron style. It was the first reinforced concrete structure to be built in Canada and the earliest fireproof hotel in Western Canada. Contractors had to be brought in from Cincinnati, Ohio for the necessary expertise; the Ferro-Concrete Construction Company began this project six years after constructing the first tall concrete building in the world.

With funding from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, the building was renovated in 1983 as affordable housing with A. Ingre and Associates as the project designers. The residential units are now managed by the Affordable Housing Society. A beer parlour formerly existed below the ground floor, which included areaways extending underneath the above sidewalks. To prevent a cave-in from the weight of pedestrians and above ground traffic, the City of Vancouver filled the areaway in with pea gravel at a cost of $215,000, which presumably can be easily removed in the event of future restoration.
The Hotel Europe was one of the filming location for the suspense movie The Changeling. In it, the building houses the Seattle Historical Society, but the hotel sign can be seen on the right side facade of the building in some takes. Some scenes are set on its spectacular roof terrace.
