Meet the architect, John Patkau of Patkau Architects who calls the Temple of Light "the most remarkable thing we've ever built," and Swami Lalitananda, president of Yasodhara Ashram, who will describe the mystical history of the Temple of Light and its significance in the world today. Moderated by Anicka Quin, Editorial Director of Vancouver Magazine and Western Living Magazine.

The Temple of Light, winner of the 2019 Wood Innovation award, is described in Architectural Record as "ethereal, dynamic and profound." Azure Magazine selected it as one of 10 best Canadian Architecture Projects of 2018, saying: "Sculptural, elegant and beautiful, the temple is a stunning complement to its surroundings."

Rebuilt on the foundation of the original dome, which was destroyed by fire, the Temple Of Light is a testament of resilience, enduring vision and innovation.
