Have you ever been curious as to what those big smokestacks at the south end of the Cambie Street Bridge are for? They are actually attached to the False Creek Energy Centre, the first facility in North America to capture heat from sewage and waste water then return it to the local buildings in the form of heat, cutting emmissions by up to 60%.
If this stuff fascinates you then you are in luck - the False Creek Engery Centre and 19 other iconic local buildings will be opened to the public this weekend as part of the inaugural 'Doors Open Vancouver'. This Saturday from 10am - 5pm you can check out the architecture, engineering and the history of some real Vancouver Landmarks. For more click here.
