Demolition (2021)

Alliance Française Vancouver has been at the 6161 Cambie Street location for over five decades. In summer 2021, the building was demolished to give way to a brand-new innovative, eco aware and community-friendly space.

To commemorate the heritage of this location Thomas Nugent was commissioned to perform a symbolic goodbye to its walls. Various rooms of the building were photographed,  and the processed film was then destroyed with focused Laser light.
