Do you realize that we are more than ten years into the new century? I still remember when we were waiting for the year 2000 and how doomsayers were saying it was the end of the world and all the computers were supposed to go haywire.
I hope you all had a good week. I didn't get the writing done I wanted to but I did get a lot of relaxing and reading in so it was worthwhile.
This first building I am going to show you is not that old. In fact the architect firm of Musson Cattell Mackey Partnership designed and had it built during 1991 and 1992.
The BC Hydro building at 333 Dunsmuir Street may not be that old but I think you will admit that it is pretty impressive looking.
(According to the fact sheet I am getting my information from the British Columbia Securities Building was designed in the Chicago School style with tripartite facade articulation of a base, shaft and capital. Sounds fancy doesn`t it?)
I hope you find the beauty around you.
