A Stable World That Will Last Forever is a constructed portrait of Vancouver, in collaboration with TILT | AIR, displayed at the Olympic Village Station from January to April 2015. The composition uses recognizable Vancouver landmarks organized into a new configuration, which allows the viewer to imagine our city within a new landscape and context.
Hughes Condon Marler Architects (HCMA) Artist-In-Residence (AIR) program was developed by the firm in 2014 as part of a broad strategy to examine the potential of the practice’s work to contribute to social sustainability goals. This initiative continues the research started by Darryl Condon (Managing Principal at HCMA) in a course on Social Sustainability offered to students of UBC’s School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture in the Spring of 2014. HCMA | AIR is meant to stimulate discussion and challenge preconceptions about the limits of architectural practice. The program invites artists to investigate the interface between the public realm and people through an exploration of the boundaries between architecture and the artist’s creative field.
Artists working in a variety of media are encouraged to participate, including visual arts, video, photography, theatre and writing. Throughout the course of the residency, artists collaborate with the staff at HCMA, discussing issues related to their work and to the project, and exploring themes related to social sustainability. Resident artists have access to the resources of the office (including computers, plotters, printers and model shop) and are supported with an honorarium and materials budget.
