From the Paper:

"Architecture in Vancouver In this essay I review Canada Place, a very unusual building situated at the bottom of Howe Street in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I consider this to be a post-modernist building. Canada Place is located on the waterfront of downtown Vancouver. It was built for "Expo 86" - the World Fair that was held in 1986 in Vancouver. The objective was an attempt to rival the impressive Sydney Opera House in Australia. The outcome was a somewhat strange looking building that elicits a wide variety of responses that run the gamut from admiration to disgust.The only thing it does not evoke is boredom. People have compared it to a tent, a camping trip, an insect and a sailing ship. "
