Canada Line, Yaletown Station. It was a new building type for me; I enjoyed the scale of the project and that it is a building for public use. The demanding schedule and budget, though often a headache, challenged the team to come up with creative solutions to complex problems. It was my introduction to the rigor and rewards of coordination work.
Favorite Thing About Your Job
I like the process of taking all the different systems and fitting them together to make a functional, beautiful building. I also like that architecture isn’t just one thing and that I have the opportunity to investigate all its facets (legal, social, material, financial, etc.) throughout the life of a project.
Favorite Thing to Do
Walking – no particular route. Pick a neighbourhood, or a street, or a park and go for a walk. The city is always changing and there’s always something new to see. And you can do it no matter the weather, as long as you’re dressed for it.
