Citizen City

Vancouver’s Henriquez Partners Challenges Architects to Engage in Partnerships that Advance Cultural Sustainability

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Marya Cotten Gould, Gregory Henriquez, and Robert Enright

“A thoughtful response to the call for shared social responsibility in our cities and how now, perhaps more than ever, the architect’s skills are needed to lead the conversation about how we will live and build in them.”Spacing magazine

In this gorgeously designed book, Vancouver’s Henriquez Partners Architects challenges fellow architects to work to create a “citizen city”—a more vibrant, just, community-oriented city with affordable housing—that meets the needs of its most vulnerable members. It focuses on the latent potential of cross-sector partnerships among private developers, non-profits, and government to harness a portion of the wealth generated in the development process to achieve socially valuable urban planning goals. Featuring more than 100 full-colour photos, plans, and infographics, and 10 informative case studies, this book encourages architects to make meaningful change in their own communities.
