Could This Be the End of Single-Family Houses in Vancouver?

March 9, 2017

Joseph Dahmen, Assistant Professor at UBC’s School of Architecture & Landscape Architecture, and Jens von Bergmann, data-scientist and mathematician, set out to discover if they could predict which single-family homes are demolished in Vancouver through an interactive tool in order to re-evaluate how reconstruction is approached in Vancouver, and how it influences our city’s heritage, affordability, building sustainability, and housing crisis.

We spoke to Dahmen about the tool and the future of the project.
