A Grand Banner

Around the block from UPPERCASE's home in Art Central, Theatre Junction is getting ready to unveil the newly renovated Grand Theatre. The Theatre Junction marketing campaign by Combine uses old marquee typography to create a lively identity for the upcoming season in their new home. It is exciting to be part of the downtown arts district and all the innovative projects happening both in Art Central and in our immediate neighbourhood.

Another architectural project to look forward to: Foster and Partners will be designing the EnCana office complex to be located just across the street from Art Central (the view outside my window). Constuction likely won't be starting for a few years, but it is good to know that the project will have an outstanding architectural firm who has designed impressive structures around the world. Per their press release: "The project, located between Seventh and Fifth Avenues and spanning two city blocks, will be the first significant commercial project east of Centre Street in downtown Calgary. Locked into the fabric of the city, it will have a strong impact on the urban context. Its scope and magnitude offers a unique opportunity to set the tone of development for this emerging urban quarter - to provide a highly efficient, exemplar sustainable scheme."
