Scope and content
The folder consists of various photographs of Granville Island, B.C. The design and master plan for the redevelopment of Granville Island in the 1970s was visionary and defining. The formerly dilapidated industrial site was transformed into a vibrant and livable community, which set a worldwide precedent for mixed-use waterfront environments. Today, HBBH continues its urban design work on Granville Island, working with the Government of Canada to ensure the Island remains a lively and productive community.
