FormShift Vancouver

FormShift Vancouver is a new competition which invites the world to help Vancouver imagine itself as not only a denser city, but one more green, livable and exciting to the eye. The program is jointly sponsored by the Architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC) and the City of Vancouver. As an "open ideas competition", the contest welcomes ideas from all potential designers - not just architects or urban planners.

The competition hopes to find designers who will combine the Climate Change Action Plans and EcoDensity Charter that Vancouver has already adopted with an entirely new perspective on urban design. It is a chance to build a hypothetical neighbourhood of the future, one that is in keeping with the vibrant, ecologically-friendly and sustainable city to which Vancouver aspires to be.
