Here Now, Nominations For The Robson St. Design Challenge

The nominations are in for the Robson Street pedestrian plaza design challenge that VIVA Vancouver launched earlier this year. Every year a new design is chosen for the 800-block of Robson Street which then shuts down to vehicles and opens up into a pedestrian friendly lounge area. Remember the massive bean bag chairs that were scattered across the streets in 2012? This year the designs are just as wacky and oddly intriguing - some of the highlights include sandboxes and mini patches of water and grass for the ultimate lounge session. Online voting is open today and the winner will be announced April 15. Installation of the winning design will be complete at the beginning of July. Tell us which design you want to win!
