Vancouver House by BIG gears up for completion
Viewed from the north end of the Granville Street bridge, BIG's 150-meter twisting tower for Canadian developer Westbank, Vancouver House, seems to lean almost too close for comfort. Its expressive form — typical of the Danish practice's work — takes signature architecture to another level; yet project architect Vance Harris, of local partner Dialog, assures us that it's "the safest place to be in an earthquake." In 100 years from now, he says, it will still be standing.
