Vancouver Convention Centre Expansion

So I had the chance to go and look at the new convention centre yesterday before work. I have to say that it is a very impressive structure. Lots of attention paid to detail in the design. Of course the things I liked the most are the use of granite all over the place, the living roof, and the water features (to remind us how much it rains in Vancouver.) Anyway if you click on the photos in the slideshow, you can see the comments I made on each photo.

This is a really great addition to our waterfront. Since it cost almost $900 million, more than Calgary’s new 8.4km West Light Rail Line, it better well be!
