Join us for a slide presentation and talk by Bruce Hemstock, Landscape Architect in charge of the development of Westminster Pier Park.
Bruce Hemstock loves to share his experience, stories, and ideas accumulated over his 32-year career as a landscape architect. He is a partner with PWL Partnership Landscape Architects and the partner in charge of the design and implementation of Westminster Pier Park. Bruce is proud of the fact that the design of the park draws inspiration from the historical, cultural, and ecological influences of the Fraser River and recognizes the strong ties the city and its residents have had with the river over the years. If these references can stir even the slightest curiosity, then a connection is made between the park and the visitor. These connections turn anonymous sites into memorable places that recognize the local vernacular.
This session includes a presentation by Bruce Hemstock, and a Q&A session with light refreshments. Event attendance is free with admission to the centre, and payment can be made on the day but pre-registration is appreciated.
