GROW

Slated for delivery in the spring of 2019, neo-brutalist GROW is a four-storey, 20-unit condo development to be located in Calgary’s Bankview neighbourhood. Channelling earlier brutalist masters, the architects at MoDA have specified a wood-frame structure and untreated-cedar-plank envelope for the building. Once it’s built, these materials will masquerade as monumental concrete formwork and – as the ribbed cedar cladding weathers – a waffle-slab facade. The extensive landscaping planned (including green walls along the communal outdoor walkways and urban-agriculture plots for each unit) is also a latter-day embodiment of Moshe Safdie’s motto regarding medium density: “For everyone, a garden.”
