Vancouver as Caprica City
Fictional cities rarely fail to arouse fascination even in the most non-architectural (and non-geek? hmm questionable) of circles, and perhaps even more so when those imaginary cities are built upon the ones we already know. The arrival of new TV series and prequel to Battlestar Galactica–Caprica–helps us to a fresh sci-fi serving of Caprica City, capital of the Twelve Colonies of Man in the Cyrranus Galaxy…or better known to us earthlings as Vancouver, Canada. The re-imagining of Vancouver offers up some way cool CG augmented skylines, familiar landmarks like Moshe Safdie’s Vancouver Public Library before its fall to the Cylons, and other groovy design details that you can check out after the jump. Don’t miss it!
