The Parkades of the Future Report for UBC Living Lab is complete.
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.
