VANCOUVER | New Vancouver Art Gallery | 70m | Pro

Wood facade pagoda design. A very BC-like architectural demeanor.
Designed by the internationally recognized Herzog-de-Meuron group.

As of October 2016, the VAG board has filed a request to the federal government, to fund $100 million into this project, which would complete 1/3 of their fundraising goal.

The current Vancouver Art Gallery

It looks like Brutalism, but hopefully the wood will keep it from looking so cold and grey as Brutalism usually is.
If I don't say otherwise, all of my images are on my blog,

No shape, no balance, no reason to be the way it is intended to be... Architecture should be something more that just "looking nice"
