As we head towards our third round of design play, Upcycled Urbanism has been turning heads 'round town. First came a great story by the Georgia Straight's Stephen Thomson:
Ready, set, design! Our first Upcycled workshop: image by Kellan Higgens.
Bill Pechet told Thomson that "he hopes the design-and-build day will provoke thought about how the urban landscape can be transformed. 'We hope that it leads to a greater conversation about the use of imaginative ideas in the public realm that aren’t just classic benches or trees, and the occasional bike rack, Pechet told the Straight." Amen!
Next came a thoughtful piece by CP reporter Rebekah Funk, accompanied by great shots by photographer Eric Dreger.

There are two more chances to join design teams this month. Join us on Sunday, Mar. 17 or Sunday, Mar 24, and to explore how we can transform a public space using giant polystyrene blocks!
