Switzerland-based Herzog & de Meuron has been selected to design the new and expanded $300 million Vancouver Art Gallery at downtown Vancouver’s Larwill Park.

Switzerland-based Herzog & de Meuron has been selected to design the new and expanded $300 million Vancouver Art Gallery at downtown Vancouver’s Larwill Park.

The new museum building will be the first project in Canada for the Pritzker Prize–winning firm that has previously designed some of the world’s most iconic structures such as London’s Tate Modern, Beijing’s Bird Nest Stadium, Basel’s Schaulager, Miami’s Pérez Art Museum, Minneapolis’ Walker Art Center, San Francisco’s de Young Museum, and Tokyo’s Prada Aoyama.

At approximately 300,000 square feet, the new Gallery building will provide more than double the space of the current facility to support the museum’s collections, exhibitions, and programs, which have increased exponentially over the past decade.

It will also enable the Gallery to better serve its growing audience, expand the international reach and range of its program, and further enhance Vancouver’s standing as a major centre of cultural production. The Gallery plans to unveil conceptual designs for the new building in early 2015.

“We are thrilled to be working with Herzog & de Meuron and to be the first to bring their incredible talent to Canada. Our new Gallery will be a vital and dynamic resource for Vancouver, one that engages and welcomes artists and visitors from the region and from around the world,” said Kathleen S. Bartels, Gallery Director.

“Herzog & de Meuron’s designs are recognized internationally for both their creativity and sensitivity to place. Their buildings not only effectively and elegantly meet the needs of their users, but also become places that are part of the cultural draw and identity of a city,” said Bruce Munro Wright, Chair of the Gallery’s Board of Trustees and Chair of the Architect Selection Committee.

Herzog & de Meuron were selected from a group of five shortlisted firms from across the globe -including Diller Scofidio + Renfro (New York), KPMB Architects (Toronto), SANAA (Tokyo), and Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects (New York) – following a series of in-depth interviews and site visits to significant projects designed by each firm. The finalists, announced in January 2014, represented five of 75 firms from 16 different countries, who submitted their credentials through an open request for qualifications (RFQ) process issued by the Gallery.

The new Vancouver Art Gallery will be located at West Georgia and Cambie Streets in downtown Vancouver, on Larwill Park – a city-owned site that was awarded to the museum by unanimous vote of the Vancouver City Council in April 2013. The new building will include dedicated space for the museum’s growing collections, expanded indoor and outdoor exhibition spaces for the Gallery’s dynamic exhibitions, and new educational facilities that will allow it to dramatically increase educational and public programs.

The Vancouver Art Gallery has received significant support for its expansion, including a $50-million gift from the Province of British Columbia and the designation by the City of Vancouver of the downtown site at West Georgia and Cambie Streets. However, in order to use the site, the municipal government has required the Gallery to raise an additional $150 million from federal and provincial governments by the end of April 2015.

The Gallery expects to announce early capital gifts in the coming weeks and launch the public phase of the capital campaign as the conceptual design is unveiled.

Construction on the new Gallery building is scheduled to begin in March 2017 for a spring 2020 opening.

SCALY 26-STOREY BUILDING PROPOSED FOR WEST GEORGIA AND CARDERO

A new rezoning application has been submitted to the City of Vancouver to allow for the construction of a 26-storey mixed-used building at the northeast corner of West Georgia and Cardero Streets in Coal Harbour.

The Bosa Properties project was designed by Henriquez Partners Architects and features triangular canopies over the residential unit balconies to provide the building, located at a highly prominent intersection, with an architecturally unique and scaly look.

Retail use is slated to occupy the ground floor while the first three floors above will be purposed for 45,346 square feet of office space. The remaining above ground floors are all residential, comprising of 184 market residential units, in addition to seven levels of underground parking for a total of 201 stalls.

The building has a height of 265 feet and will reach a floor space ratio of 10.83. Proponents are aiming to integrate a high level of sustainable and energy efficient designs to achieve a LEED Gold environmental certification.

Do we include projects around metro Vancouver here?

In any case here's a pic I took last week of the megadevelopment next to metrotown (Burnaby). I believe it's called Station Square.

To the far right you can see that the first tower which is one of the smaller ones in the render is almost finished.

Excited to see if this comes about. Only 3 blocks away from where I live.

ole scheeren reveals plans for a geometrically extruded skyscraper in vancouver

beijing-based architect ole scheeren has revealed plans for ‘1500 west georgia’ in vancouver, a scheme that will be his studio’s first project outside asia. the design opens up the tower’s inert shaft to embrace both city and nature in a three-dimensional sculpture, which projects the space of living outwards into the surrounding context. located on the canadian city’s main avenue, the tower, developed by bosa properties, stands as a new beacon at the gateway to vancouver and forms an urban pivot strategically positioned where the city grid fragments.

More info in link above.

Right across the street from the project above, another new one proposed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. No pics as yet but I'll post renderings soon as they are released.

Japanese architect proposes 40-storey carved tower for downtown Vancouver

During an event held Monday evening, local developer Westbank Projects Corporation provided West End neighbourhood residents with a preview of Kuma’s Japanese-inspired design for a slender 40-storey residential tower at 1550 Alberni Street. The scale and concept of the tower abides to the City’s view cone policy and West End Community Plan.

Kuma’s tower design features curving ‘carved deductions’ on the lower half of the northeast corner and upper half of the southwest corner. The facade will be made of a combination of glass and polished anodized aluminum to provide the structure with an almost chequered appearance – shades of Kuma’s FRAC Marseille in France and Bjarke Ingels’ Vancouver House, also by Westbank, on the other side of the downtown peninsula.

A total of 188 residential units are proposed for the building, with many units within the carved deductions possessing substantially sized patios or what project proponents have termed as ‘open gardens’. Interior materials will include the heavy use of wood and bamboo.

Retail space and a restaurant will be located at the tower’s foot, along with a highly unique public amenity – a ground-level Japanese moss garden within a hollowed section of the building, with water and natural features built along the face of an amphitheatre-like, cascading plateau.

60-storey pixelated skyscraper proposed for downtown Vancouver

A new proposed development for downtown Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood could provide the skyline with a pixelated touch.

A 60-storey residential building, dubbed ‘Nelson on the Park’ by project proponents, is planned for 1075 Nelson Street – just metres away from Nelson Park and a half-block’s distance from First Baptist Church. The proposal lies within the municipal government’s West End Community Plan’s 550 foot height limit, allowing the project to eclipse the height of the nearby One Wall Centre.

More info and pics in the link above.

The last one's very good. It breaks the mold of the typical Vancouver tower.
