Canada Place Renewal
The design vision symbolizes islands in the ocean – representing
Captain George Vancouver’s incredible journey from ‘Desolation to
Splendour’ in 1792.
The revitalized public plaza celebrates Canadas 150th birthday with
promenade, contemporary seating, performance stage, and viewing
platform, ambient mood lighting to create an inviting year round
place day and night for all ages.
Key attention was paid to enhancing the visitor experience and
improving outdoor event programming, opportunities for flexible
gathering spaces, and to take advantage of the spectacular
waterfront location. Vibrant marble paving and sculptural furniture/
planters symbolize water, movement, and reflection.
