The manufactured edge of the False Creek tidal basin is dissolved reclaiming the natural wetland heritage, habitat, and function. From the water’s edge, layered recreation, cultural, agriculture and residential outcroppings establish and frame the gentle forested slope towards the elevated pedestrian and cycle ribbon. The viaduct structure is transformed from barrier to canopy as it channels traffic from Pacific and Expo Blvds beneath the reclaimed shoreline.
