“Darn It” – re:Connect Open Ideas Competition

Hapa Collaborative is a landscape architecture and urban design practice established with placemaking, attentiveness and collaboration in mind.

We see each project as an opportunity to partner, dream big and synthesize ideas wrought from many, often opposing, influences.  Our goal is to evoke the poetry of the place and in doing so reveal something delightful but perhaps previously unseen.  Most of all, we consider Hapa to be a contemporary voice for landscape architecture and a small, agile and fresh alternative to traditional firms.

Hapa Collaborative works within the full breadth of scales from master plans to pocket parks, civic spaces to private residences, streetscapes to green roofs.  However we specifically enjoy addressing the leftover spaces between buildings, applying the principles of landscape urbanism to city-building, site design and community consultation. We like to explore new methods and materials, forge new relationships and ultimately create places that people remember.

Here are some artifacts from our fun and inspiring consultation with kids for the Terra Nova Play Environment.  They had great ideas!



First-ever City of Vancouver Urban Design Awards, winners are now posted!

Joe was very grateful to be invited to be a juror for the City of Vancouver’s inaugural Urban Design Awards, recently handed out at Van Dusen Gardens this past week.  Joe joined Greg Bellerby, David Dove and Peter Wreglesworth  while city planner Patrick O’Sullivan (left) guided our jury through a full day of deliberations and kept us on track, focused and energized.    It was a pleasure to review such a high calibre of work in all the submissions, but in particular the winning projects that excelled on many levels.

All the winners are now posted on the City of Vancouver’s website at
