Meet the 'Genius of Light' who transformed Harbourfront's parking garage
The Globe and Mail
James Carpenter, the MacArthur "genius"-grant-winning light artist and architect who has won acclaim for recent projects, has created a brilliant installation at Harbourfront's new garage and public square. Called Light Cascade, the piece is a wall of glass three storeys tall and 15 metres wide that refracts and channels light down into the underground parking garage through a large opening and, thanks to lights at the bottom, will illuminate Ontario Square, the new public space on the waterfront.

Arch Daily
The Southlands Residence nestles into a mature, heavily vegetated corner site in Vancouver's historical Dunbar-Southlands neighborhood. A year-round fresh water stream divides the irregularly shaped property as it threads its way below Marine Drive to the south. The lush basin resulting from long-standing environmental forces sets the stage for a dramatic and highly contextual architectural response.
