Telus Garden – Westbank Corp & Henriquez Partners Architects
If you live in Vancouver you have probably heard of Telus Garden. It occupies and revitalizes an entire block in an aging, somewhat uninspired part of downtown.
Highly visible are the environmental aspects of the building including prominent solar panels, light shades, multiple roof top gardens and a small forest in the lobby. What you do not see is a building loaded with technology, although the programmable exterior LED lighting is pretty cool.
