VIDEO: Canfor's Playhouse Challenge at the PNE in Vancouver
Canfor has assembled British Columbia's best architects, wood product and construction firms together to assemble several unique playhouses that are not only currently being featured at the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver but will soon travel to playgrounds across the province.
Laura Ballance, the spokesperson for the PNE, gave the Journal of Commerce a rundown of the many innovative playhouses on display and the reaction of the public, especially young children, to the many different designs.
Sakshi Misra, a graduate of the British Columbia Institute of Technology Architectural Sciences program, worked on the “Airplane House,” a playhouse that features a cartoonish airplane on top of slides and climbing areas. The structure is primarily constructed of wood, and Misra listed off the many challenges of the unconventional project for herself and her classmates.
