Wednesday 15 JuneHamburg 2019Photo: Hillcrest Centre – HCMA / Ed WhiteHillcrest CentreLocated near the geographical centre of Vancouver, the facility carefully balances the needs of both the local community andbroader city. The centre was part of a strategy that transformed a series of adjacent public parks through the sensitive consolidation and reorganization of existing facilities. The impetus for this rejuvenation was the siting of the 2010 Vancouver OlympicCurling Venue, which provided four Olympic-size curling sheets and 6,000 spectator seats, and was converted afterwards to theHillcrest Centre. Careful attention was given to reconcile Olympic requirements with the long-term legacy for this community facility. The facility demonstrates an energetic example of civic design and receives over two million visitors a year.Hillcrest Centre was a recipient of the 2013 IOC IAKS Award in illcrest-centre.aspxUniversity of British Columbia Aquatic CentreThe UBC Aquatic Centre serves athletic training, competition, and neighbourhood leisure needs.
