Grand Hotel

Vancouver Art Gallery

Architectural Model Design


Commissioned and produced by the Vancouver Art Gallery as a major exhibition, Grand Hotel charts the evolution of the hotel from its humble origins as an isolate and utilitarian structure to a cultural phenomenon that figures prominently within the global landscape.

“Grand Hotel is the latest example of the Gallery’s commitment to creating innovative exhibitions which foster new and dynamic understandings of visual culture,” said Gallery director Kathleen Bartels, “We’re very excited to be presenting this first-ever exhibition on the hotel as a defining architectural structure of the modern age, and proud that this project fills a considerable void in existing scholarship on this important subject.”
