A retrospective of the work of Vancouver designer Tobias Wong (1974-2010) opens tonight at the Museum of Vancouver. It’s curated by Todd Falkowsky who, along with his colleagues at the Canadian Design Resource, has perhaps done more to promote Canadian design and designers than anyone else, at least in the last decade.

I really like the new (2009) graphic identity for the restyled Museum of Vancouver. It was designed by Amanda Martens of Kaldor. Related items such as this entryway banner were put together by designer Sofia Pona. The striking building, which also houses Vancouver’s planetarium, was designed by architect Gerald Hamilton in 1968.
I’ve liked this building from childhood, but somehow I managed to see it with fresh eyes recently – I was late for an art event there, it was dusk, I was tired, the entry was deserted and somehow I suddenly noticed how ridiculously beautiful it is. It houses the Museum of Vancouver and the H.R.
