The New Arcadia: Soundwalk with Jean Routhier in Vancouver's False Creek

It is a windy Saturday afternoon. A group of twenty or so gathers at the Roundhouse Centre, the beginning of an exploration. Our journey features neither the excitement of an urban environment nor the wonders of nature. The setting of our adventure is, rather, False Creek's condominium developments. This idyllic landscape, along with a copycat development in Dubai, is the site of investigation for M. Simon Levin, Glen Lowry, and Henry Tsang's upcoming website release and exhibition, under the title Maraya Projects.

Unconscious Sound: Jean Routhier and the History of Soundwalks in Vancouver

Several years in the making, Maraya Projects opens this November at Vancouver’s Centre A. Taking its name from the Arabic word for mirror, Maraya denotes a reflection between “the largest man-made marina in the world” and its inspiration, Vancouver’s Concord Pacific Place. Many of the consultants and planners who designed the high-end condominiums on Vancouver’s False Creek waterfront later went to work on the opulent Dubai Marina.
