The Fairmont Presents “The Art of Development” in Hotel that Helped Define Vancouverism

“The hotel was designed by James Cheng, an architect who blends elements of Asian design with modern west-coast demands for the hi-tech. His green glass towers have come to define the term “Vancouverism.”

“The hotel was designed by James Cheng, an architect who blends elements of Asian design with modern west-coast demands for the hi-tech. His green glass towers have come to define the term “Vancouverism.” But it’s inside the hotel that something quite pioneering stands out once in the lobby. Owners Westbank Projects weren’t simply looking to fill with hotel with themed art. They created the hotel driven by their own interest to build around the art.

No wonder then that the property contains some of the most outstanding art works in the city. So much so that it has created a self-guided walking audio tour, called “The Art of Development,” downloadable as a podcast, for anyone to explore the extensive collection.”
