Tall blank walls can be found in almost any city in the world. Outside of the downtown core, these walls appear as expressionless monoliths that are a result of the building’s function, cost, and design. Other cities use these vertical spaces for advertisements, large murals/graffiti art, and projection screens. What can Calgary do with these vertical spaces? The images below features University of Calgary’s Social Science Building.
