Through the Forest : Representing Vancouver's Roots Bull, Olivia


Vancouver is a city on the brink, a city that needs a new conception of itself in image, and story as much as in building. The city requires a new representation, one where rich layered spaces deriving from both past and present combine to form alter-narratives of the city. This re-presentation of the city must come through the forest, which continues to inform the city’s image and imagination despite its apparent disappearance. There is no Vancouver with the forest, yet there is also no city without it.
