  • CFB Chilliwack

    In the ongoing photographic series CFB Chilliwack, I survey the effects that economics play on communities and the flexible intent of military housing. Canadian Forces Base Chilliwack was closed after the Cold War following a decrease in military spending.  The military housing is being transformed from its cold, ridged functionality into more liveable, residential housing.  Blending one idea of utility with a new idea of home. However, these revised structures fail to escape their original intentions of cheap functional living spaces.
