Vancouver Park Studies, 2015 – Ongoing
Vancouver has more than 230 parks that make up 11% of Vancouver’s land mass. I have always appreciated the forethought of the city’s early planners who saw the benefit of green spaces, recreational facilities, and physical buffers between neighbourhoods.
‘Vancouver Park Studies’ started as a documentation of the extant park houses – park caretaker suites attached to the public facilities – in many of the larger parks throughout the city. As the documentation continued, the project expanded to document candid moments of the people who use the parks, and the parks within the greater context of the city.
