Art of Development
Sometimes it is the small things that make the biggest impact. This is certainly the case at Fairmont Pacific Rim - where mindfulness to small details enrich the experience. The hotel is designed by James Cheng, the architect whose green glass towers helped create the term "Vancouverism" and combines the best of Asia and the West Coast in its design.
Under the direction of owner/developer, Westbank Projects Corp., the collection is not themed, rather driven by interest and passion. Started in 2010 with the hotel's opening, the collection includes works by Neil Campbell, James Cheng, Liam Gillick, Fred Herzog, Zhang Huan, Ian Wallace and Joseph Wu, and underlines a deep commitment to bringing art and artists into all aspects of the hotel's design and development.

Art Tour Podcast
We hope you take the time to explore and we invite you to learn more about our thriving art program. To further fuel an artful passion, Fairmont Pacific Rim invites you to discover the art and artistry of the hotel’s growing international art collection. The self-guided podcast, over the course of 35 minutes, will explore the public art and architectural detail at the property, beginning outside and gradually making its way inside to the works throughout the public areas of the hotel. It is a starting point to begin exploring a young, increasingly art-savvy city. The podcast is offered daily from 7am – 7pm.Public Art in Vancouver
Vancouver's art scene is emerging and you can spot a variety of public art installations dotted throughout the city. Your experience starts steps from the hotel. The developers of Fairmont Pacific Rim are committed to enhancing the public art program with several of Vancouver’s most important installations. We have put together a collection of images of our favourite pieces throughout the city and in case you are not able to visit these public art pieces we thought we'd bring them to you.
We are also proud to partner with artists and designers on events that awaken the senses such as an Evening by Design featuring artist, Adad Hannah, and fashion designer, Catherine Regehr. View photos of a spectacular summer evening here at Fairmont Pacific Rim.
