In November 2017, a group of SFU students built a giant blanket fort for a music stage beneath the Cambie Street Bridge in order to showcase what can be done with underutilized public space. Under the giant blanket fort was a street festival, book exchange, and a musical patio jam space. The students were tasked with developing installations that reflect the growing needs in Vancouver. The blanket fort represented the increase in tent cities across the province. No indication on whether a permit was obtained from the City of Vancouver for the temporary space use.
