Vancouver Vanishes Since , more than 10, demolition permits have been issued for residential buildings in the City of Vancouver. Very few are deemed significant enough to merit heritage protection, but they are part of our heritage nonetheless and their demolition is not only an architectural loss. When these homes come down, a whole history goes with them—the materials that were used to build them, the gardens, the successive owners and their secrets. These old houses and apartments are repositories of narrative. The story of our city is diminished every time one disappears. Buy Vancouver Vanishes from Amazon. Join the Facebook page.

We welcome each university to organize a group of students to study course packages in the beautiful campus of the University of British Columbia. Many course packages have a minimum and maximum class size, so we encourage you to register your students early.

If any mother-daughter dialogue ensued, it probably concerned her favourite colour purple. Grace Gordon-Collins and her year-old daughter, Alexandra, have taken creative collaboration a fair bit further, and their art-table dialogue too. Life, love, lust, betrayal, violence, revenge — you name it, they’ve talked about it, dramatized it, photographed it, and are now about to mount it in an exhibition called Pulp, opening next Thursday at Diane Farris Gallery in Vancouver.
Trust me, Play-Doh was a lot safer than this stuff. But then, without risk it’s not really art, as mother and daughter pointed out to me last week when we met at their studio to talk about the spicy pulp-fiction-inspired series that Grace created using Alexandra — Ali for short — as her model and muse. The studio is on the ground floor of a renovated warehouse near the North Vancouver waterfront where Grace and her husband Ernest run their carriage-trade architecture practice and their interior design firm, Archipelago.
In the last 25 years they have designed and built some of British Columbia’s most striking private residences. Up until the last two, Grace’s photography has been a professional sideline.

The lady of the house recently told Werner: The shower area featured sliding glass doors to a private deck at the side of the house — something that might have been a design plus, only now the deck had become un-used and was wasted space. Werner decided to push the walls of the bathroom out, claiming the area occupied by the deck. Views to the lush greenery beyond would still be enjoyed, through an exterior glass block wall in the shower and a picture window over the raised soaker tub.
