I just keep driving by this in downtown Vancouver (1445 West Georgia St.) and thought it might be interesting to local designers, etc.
The site says, “Dudoc is a platform for sustainable Dutch companies to promote their business cases for sustainable development. It provides an opportunity for exceptional Dutch innovators to introduce their advanced environmental designs and products to the Canadian public. As such, it bridges the gap [between] European expert knowledge and the Canadian consumers.”
It also talks about the space being more than exhibition space but also “an arena for imaginative conversations…”
They have a grand opening October 30th, 2o14. Sounds interesting though it also seems to be more about urban planning and construction than about product design.
