The Infinite Happiness: Film Screening And Panel Discussion

In celebration of World Town Planning Day, join the Planning Institute of BC’s South Coast Chapter and Vancouver Public Space Network for a film screening and panel discussion of The Infinite Happiness.

The Infinite Happiness is a personal video diary shot entirely in Copenhagen’s “8 House” designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), following a group of residents as they experience life in a contemporary housing block that was designed to be ideal housing for all families. The film by Beka and Lemoine “constructs a collection of life stories all interconnected through their personal relationships with the building (drawing) the lines of a human map, which allows the viewer to discover the building through an internal and intimate point of view – all while questioning the architecture’s ability to create collective happiness.”


Panelists include:

Ian Ross McDonald, Architect AIBC, Partner – Carscadden Stokes McDonald
Keltie Craig MCIP, RPP, Social Planner– City of Vancouver
Stephanie Williams, General Manger – Better Environmentally Sound Transportation
Ericka Stephens-Rennie, Co-founder and Resident – Vancouver Co-Housing

Please RSVP by Thursday November 09, 2017 at noon (12pm).
