What once was old, is new. And new often gets old, even before it gets old. Get it? The long and short of this, is that something never get old, and one of those is MCM. What is MCM, you may ask? It stands for Mid-Century Modern. Mid-century modern is a design movement in interior, product, graphic design, architecture, and urban development that was popular in the United States and Europe from roughly 1945 to 1969, during the United States’s post–World War II period. It was a period where pretty much everything was cool and hip. Think Miles Davis, Porsche, TWA . . . It was an American reflection of the International and Bauhaus movements, including the works of Gropius, Florence Knoll, Le Corbusier and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, etc. Learn more about that here. Even more importantly, it has never gone out of fashion. It’s one of those ideas that was built to last. (We’ve done a number of articles about it: see here.
So it is with great pleasure that we feature an MCM hotel where you can stay and bask in the vibes. Even better, it’s in Vancouver, a city that is not short on vibes, as well. Behold The Burrard.
