Surviving Vancouver

This book asks and answers two questions. What’s survived in Vancouver? And, how do you survive in Vancouver? From historic neighbourhoods under threat from land speculation to the debates about densifying and making room, Michael Kluckner explores the contested space of Metro Vancouver, using his classic watercolour images from the past 25 years. Forty years after his Vancouver The Way It Was book, Surviving Vancouver concludes his study of the city.

Exploring Vancouver Naturehoods
An Artist’s Sketchbook Journal

Did you know that flies have halters? That hummingbird tail feathers sing? Or that bees have five eyes? The closer you look, the more incredible ordinary things become.

Seen through the pages of an artist’s sketchbook journal, the extraordinary biodiversity in our city comes into view. Exploring Vancouver Naturehoods takes a closer look at nature wherever you find it in our city, whether in a beautiful park, a tree-lined street, your backyard, or a plant poking through a crack in the sidewalk. These are Vancouver’s “naturehoods” – any greenspace in your neighbourhood no matter how big or how small. This local artist uses her sketchbook as an opportunity to discover and explore nature throughout our city and as a portal to connect with community on many levels.
