Gesamtkunstwerk: The Philosophy

Vancouver BC

2014

We discovered the word and philosophy behind “gesamtkunstwerk,” and came to the belief that it best represents a guiding philosophy for all Westbank projects, current and future. The key concept here is taking the idea of the total work of art to a whole new scale – applying this philosophy to solve problems and create opportunities for enlightened city-building. For Westbank, adopting a building mission around the concept of a total work of art evolves naturally out of the record documented in Building Artistry. It has now become the core philosophy of everything that we do. Visit www.gwerk.ca to watch the exhibition unfold.
