Why make Calgary Vibrant?

    Vibrancy refers to an intensity of life, energy, and enthusiasm. Vibrant civic places contribute to the creative economy by attracting people and encouraging economic activity that increases diversity. Vibrant buildings – both public and private - help to establish new perspectives, inspire creative action, and uplift our spirits. By developing design strategies that cultivate diversity, creativity, and excitement, EVDS researchers are helping to make Calgary a more multidimensional and exciting place to live.
