Wayne Moriarty: Green pastures of convention centre roof leave me dreaming
I have two columns left in me. Today, I will solve a mystery. Friday, I will tell a story. Until about eight years ago, the historic Marine Building on the corner of Burrard and Hastings streets, with its Art Deco nuts and bolts, was my favourite bit of architecture in this town. I greatly delight in the gothic beauty of Vancouver City Hall, too. But for the past number of years, my new favourite building has been the west wing of the Vancouver Convention Centre — notable for many reasons, none more so than the pasture on its roof.
