VANCOUVER, BC - Renowned Vancouver architect Gregory Henriquez tells the story of the creation of the city's newest high-profile art case piano: The Fazioli in the beautiful new lobby of the Telus Gardens building.
Ian Gillespie, the visionary leader behind Westbank - the city's preeminent development company - commissioned Gregory Henriquez to design the Telus Gardens building and a one of a kind Fazioli piano to be a centre piece for their lobby.
Probably now one of the most city's visible pianos, it can be clearly seen by the 80,000 daily passersby on West Georgia - between Seymour and Richards.
