The Vancouver Convention Center gets retrofitted just in time for the 2010 winter olympics. The building has been remodeled to exemplify ecological design.

The center itself, recycles 180,000 kilograms of material each year, and utilizes local food markets for its event’s menu. The “living roof” is a six acre green garden of regional and indigenous plants, providing rainwater for irrigation.
