The Woodwards Cross

I work in Chinatown, so I’ve been watching the progress of the Woodward’s Development. The City of Vancouver has a good site on the project. Anyway, I wanted to point out a more spiritual side of the project. To my surprise, I found out the architect seems to have embedded a Christian cross in the design. It’s very obvious if you compare it to the rest of the building’s architecture on Hastings Street.

What looks different?

Yes, it's a Christian cross.

It’s good to know that religious symbols are still very much a part of urban design. In fact, church’s used to be the finest example of architecture in many older cities.
