  • 'Admittedly, the term Vancouverism makes some folks cringe - especially those who stubbornly equate it with social policy for lefties, reckless density, or urban planning that caters to the rich and squeezes out the middle class.

    But if we step back and take the politics and class battles out of the term, we can appreciate its true essence - urban spaces and buildings that blend seamlessly with nature, with transportation choices to match. At its best, say the exhibit's curators ... Vancouverism "brings together a deep respect for the natural environment with high concentrations of residents."'
