continued sapperton landing [New Westminster, BC] snippet project

phase 2 of the sapperton landing 'snippet' took shape in a curvaceous form incorporating a free plan. opening to its landscape, the fraser river, the objective of this pavilion design is to create awareness of the surroundings around the architecture.

new westminster was once a golden capital of british columbia, however, since the dawn of the hwy # 1 overpass (1964) the 'hey' days of this historical community has dwindled down. it is said in recent local newspaper columns , that the resilient traits of new westminster is about to bring vibrant change to its streets, parks and civic plazas. it will definitely be interesting to see the city re-format itself; already there are numerous sustainable and multi-use projects being developed in the downtown core.
