Vote for your favourite B.C. building

Have a favourite building in B.C.?

A building that always catches your eye or somehow speaks to you on a personal level?

The Architecture Foundation of B.C. wants to know.

It’s launching a contest to choose the 100 best buildings in the province.

From the sails of Canada Place to the grass roof of our new convention centre, we aspire for world class status.

We’ve always built iconic buildings, the Legislature, the Empress Hotel, the Marine Building in Downtown Vancouver.

With our post Expo 86, growth there has been a headlong rush into the future  and that concerns many.

The Architecture Foundation of B.C. wants to change that. It’s starting a new contest to name the 100 best buildings in our province.

The idea is to celebrate architecture in this province. The judges aren’t just looking for architectural merit, they’re looking for emotional merit. That means if you love a barn or a church anywhere in B.C., they want to hear about it.

Some favourites are expected to be nominated, like Vancouver’s Marine Building or the Vancouver Public Library, but organizers hope they will find new hidden gems.
