Thanks for the update! They took a lot of time for the foundations? I supose they were difficult to make because of the very close water

It won't be quite as good as Sydney's Opera House or HK's convention centre, but I'm sure Vancouver will have a beautiful waterfront landmark.

Great pics!

^Well, don't forget about BC Place. That's quite a landmark, I'd say.

Thanks for the pics - haven't been down there for a while.

The jury's still out on the design. Some of the more recent renderings make the roof edge look very bulky.
