Yaletown-Roundhouse Station With All That Glass
Now according to "Exploring Vancouver: The Architectural Guide" by Harold Kalman, Robin Ward, Mike Harcourt, and John Roaf - a book I checked out for a recent Vancouver trip - about the Yaletown-Roundhouse Station, "The Canada Line’s no-frills design resulted in a utilitarianism so severe (and refreshing) that it might have been imported from North Korea. The stations, mostly underground, are concrete, glass and steel, accented as here with wood on the surface. The architects brought SkyTrain experience to the job. This station is a clever solution to a tight site below and above ground, sidestepping buildings, an underground parkade and a pocket park (Bill Curtis Plaza). The entrance, essentially a glass box, is a contemporary foil to the nearby Roundhouse." Thought I'd show just how integrated #TransLink#SkyTrain is with the urban villages it connects. This is from the Canada Line, BTW.
#Foodie Tip: When you arrive at #Vancouver's airport, there's a train called the Canada Line that takes you into the heart of downtown. It's a straight shot, about 30 minutes.
At the 20 minute mark is a train station called "Broadway-City Hall." Here, you can get out, cross the street, eat tacos at @lataqueria, and get back on the train like nothing ever happened. ✨🌮✨ #MischiefManaged#EATtheMAP
