The City's Built Form
Mike Chadwick

In contrast to the typical panorama shots of Vancouver, this collection is a nod to the built structures of the city. Far more than a photo collection, Vancouver in Focus is a guidebook, complete with maps and pointers. It is an invitation to explore the subjects of its pages, that bring together old and new, bridges and buildings, objective and subjective realities.

The area covered encompasses the city's downtown core, from Stanley Park eastward to the neighbourhoods of Chinatown and Citygate, and from Coal Harbour south to English Bay, Granville Island and False Creek. Off ering a fresh exploration of the city's downtown areas, this highly readable book will appeal to visitors, newcomers and long-time residents alike.
