Robson Redux is a part of the City of Vancouver’s popular VIVA Vancouver program. For the last four summers, VIVA Vancouver has transformed the public space on the 800-block of Robson Street into a summertime plaza. This is the second year of the Robson Redux design-build competition.

The 2014 winning design was Urban Reef. The winning submission to the inagural Robson Redux design-build competition was selected among 78 entries from as far away as Spain, Japan, and the United States. We look forward to your contribution to creating a welcoming public space for the summer of 2015.
