Chinatown: Reflective Urbanisms (C.R.U.) is a project mapping Calgary Chinatown’s history through exploring the stories of buildings in the neighbourhood, and how they have changed throughout the decades.

Part of the Calgary Chinatown Artist Residence—a partnership between The City of Calgary’s Public Art Program and The New Gallery—C.R.U. is a project by New York-based artist and architect Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong. C.R.U. looks forward to collecting your stories about Chinatown’s streets and buildings; the activities that took place in and around them; and the ways in which Chinatown has changed (i.e. buildings demolished, new buildings built, new facades erected, etc.).
