Students at the School of Architecture at UBC and architect Inge Roecker have spent the past year researching and designing a woman-centered pharmacy as an answer to the unsafe and often exploitative options in the Downtown Eastside.
This project is a collaboration between the Vancouver Women’s Health Collective, UBC Architecture and Central City Foundation. The Centre will provide space for Lu’s (a Pharmacy for women), a nurse and doctor’s office, a facility for naturopathic treatment and a new home for the Vancouver Women’s Health Collective. The goal is to use sustainable and recycled materials to provide all women with a centre for health and advocacy.
The project is slated for completion in September 2008 and is still in need of funding in order to make it a reality. Boneta restaurant has joined forces with Studio 801 to have a fundraising dinner event Sunday, July 13, 2008. Executive Chef Jeremie Bastien and his team have created a beautiful summer menu for the event.
