The body of work CIVIC. CENTRE. focuses on a four-block stretch on the eastern edge of Calgary’s downtown core, extending from the south side of the Municipal Building, through the old Public Library and the Bow Valley College Campus, to the northern edge of the YWCA. This swath of the city with its complicated networks of public, semi-public and private space is the point of convergence between Calgary’s nancial center and the East Village. It carries the marks of job loss, poverty, gentri cation, displacement and redevelopment.
