As a Materials Partner, Canada Place is happy to see our sail fabric play a key role in this innovative and sustainable project. It is great for a part of Canada Place, like its former home, to continue to serve as a meeting place for Vancouverites as well as international and Canadian visitors.
Pop Rocks is an equal collaboration between AFJD Studio

More Sail Fabric in Action!
Big Dreams School
Canada Place sail fabric has been re-used to positive effect is the Big Dream School in Tanzania, Africa. The material was used to create a protective awning to shield people from the elements as they gather to learn, perform and celebrate their culture. Learn more about the Big Dream School Project. Long a natural meeting place, Canada Place is honored to be a part of this central element at the school.
