51st & Main. Oh god. A pollen monster crawled up my nose last night and still hasn’t come out, it’s slowly killing me. Anyway this is the new Sunset Community Centre by local super-architect Bing Thom. I can’t quite tell how the roof is staying up… there are two pairs of huge concrete slabs that cross in an X pattern (see the satellite photo), and it looks like the whole thing is hanging off those, although that seems impossible. Anyway it’s stunningly beautiful. You can see and read more here. Or better yet, just go visit it.

Strangely, I was also beside another nursery. In the satellite photo you can see the Vancouver Parks Board greenhouses; eventually they will be integrated into educational and recreational programs through the community centre.

Last thing… this is for Margaret:

Monday morning, 8am
