Vancouverism VS Motordom – aq April 2008

Vancouverism VS Motordom – aq April 2008.

Picked this article up through Price Tags.  It’s written by Larry Beasley, former head planner at the City of Vancouver, for aq, the magazine of Simon Fraser University.  It doesn’t say much that is new to me, but it does give a good summary of the history of urban planning in Vancouver and the development of “Vancouverism” with it’s pointy towers and the defeat of freeway expansion within the city boundaries.
