Moving Through: transit-oriented mini-walks from the Museum of Vancouver, Sat Feb 19, 2011

This event crossed my desk: I thought many of you might be interested!

The Museum of Vancouver is offering an “out of the box” exploration of Vancouver’s built environment near public transit, on Saturday, February 19, 2011.

Check out the Museum’s calendar for full details: here’s an excerpt below.

Join us for an “out of the box” exploration of Vancouver’s built environment, via public transit, in Part Two of “This is Not an Architectural Speaker’s Series.”

What does it look like? Three mini-walks and talks in three separate transit locales with some of Vancouver’s most engaging architects and urban planners.
