Acadia Park 2030 : a vibrant celebration of sustainable community supporting UBC's place and promise University of British Columbia. School of Community and Regional Planning


Acadia Park is one of UBC’s oldest, most vibrant and diverse neighbourhoods. It is home to students and student families from all over the world and is the epitome of walkability and human scale design. As with every other neighbourhood on the UBC campus, it faces pressures to accommodate a fair share of the university’s commitment to increasing opportunities for students, staff and faculty to live close to work and school. The challenge for the Acadia Park Neighbourhood is to develop a vision of growth that maintains its remarkable and unique community character and spectacular natural setting. Urban design students in the School of Community and Regional Planning, under the direction of professor Maged Senbel, took on this challenge and produced the three designs presented in these pages.
