Part of the fun of seeing a Pixar film is the whimsical short films included alongside the feature length film. We recently toured Pixar's Canada office, where the primary focus is crafting short stories of our favorite Toy Story and Cars characters. Located in the Gastown neighborhood of Vancouver, the building has an unassuming facade compared to the sprawling campus of the original Pixar office in Northern California. What once served as a bustling hotel until a fire nearly destroyed it, Pixar is now lovingly restoring the building into a creative working space while maintaining its original character and paying homage to the striking water and mountain views seen from the large picture windows that line the walls.
