AnnaLisa Meyboom presented at the Urban Design Forum on urban futures and the disruptive technology of the self-driving car
We just finished the Assemblages Intensive Wood Studio with students from South East University in China and SALA. Great work all round! Taught with Blair Satterfield!

AnnaLisa lectured at the Digital Design & Construction of Timber Structures Symposium at the Center of Advanced Wood Processing at UBC
Just awarded a grant to study Parkades of the Future. This is a TIPSlab project which will look at what parkades could become and how they could contribute more to society in future. We will be looking at potentials such as energy, exterior heat-moderated environments, temporary uses, future transportation such as drone landing pads and adaptations such as ground floor alternate uses.
This is a UBC Living Lab project so we will use UBC’s parkades as a testing ground for the ideas.
See TIPSlab for more details.
Just awarded a grant with collaborators Prof Thomas Tannert (Civil/Wood Sciences UBC), Prof Oliver Neumann (SALA UBC) and Iain Macdonald (CAWP) to research the design and fabrication of large scale timber shell structures using advanced fabrication methods.
I hope this expands the perception of wood in the world to make it the material of choice for curved architectural design. Renewable and easily fabricated with today’s advanced technology. Read more under Research.
Just awarded a grant to research the impact of autonomous vehicles on urban form and society! More details under TIPSlab…
TIPSlab has won an AIGA (Re)DesignAward for Sustainable and Socially Responsible Design for their Design Guidelines and Standards for British Columbia’s Electric Vehicle Charging Stations. This work was completed for the Province of British Columbia and BC Hydro under grants from the Provincial and Federal governments.
What does Vancouver want to be when it grows up? A giant green resort for the world’s wealthy of course, chock a block with health inducing goodies such as bike paths, yoga studios and spas. If it has no room for offices or it’s port but that’s ok because it doesn’t need to work, it’s ‘naturally’ gifted.
This is a super article about the ‘creative’ and the wealthy cities of the world…
Expensive Cities are Killing Creativity
