VIDEO | Surroundings


Surroundings is a new video series that tells the stories behind some of Metro Vancouver’s well-known public places from the perspectives of the landscape architects who designed them.

The first episode (televised on Shaw TV) features Don Vaughan and focuses on bringing meaning to place through the use of public art. This episode looks at three separate sites: Metrotown Civic Plaza, Granite Assemblage at Ambleside, and High Tide Pavilion/Low Tide Sculpture at David Lam Park.

This video series is non-profit video and was made with zero funding and simply put together by Saba Farmand and Paul Albi who have a love for landscape architecture, the region they live in, and film making.and wanted to promote the profession of landscape architecture.

A great initiative by two people with a love for landscape architecture – you can find our more about the series on the Surroundings Facebook page and watch the 3 upcoming episodes on Shaw TV or the Youtube.
