Your Future Home: Creating the New Vancouver

Museum of Vancouver
Vancouver BC – Jan 21-May 15, 2016

Co-produced with the Vancouver Urbanarium Society, this timely exhibition features 20 visions for the future of a city that, at this moment, has housing prices going through the roof and affordable rental apartments giving way to fly-by-night Airbnb crash pads.

“Vancouver is a city in flux,” says Gregory Dreicer, MOV’s director of curatorial and engagement. “With everone already talking about Vancouver’s sky-high housing prices, we want to shift the conversation from real estate to the state of the city.”

To facilitate this shift, Dreicer and his team of architects, urban planners and visionaries devised an exhibition format based on four topical issues – housing affordability, residential density, ease of transportation and quality of public spaces. These issues are brought together to form a series of “multimedia scenerios that ask visitors [to the exhibition] to stop and think [about] what they want in their hometown.”

Some of Your Future Home’s case studies include the post-CP Rail Arbutus Lands, the post-ECUAD Granville Island and “changes to how we heat buildings downtown.” Among the exhibition’s more recognizable participants are architects Andrew Gruft, Richard Henriquez, Leslie Van Duzer and Marta Farevaag.
