With respect to being located on traditional territories, this project is focused on sustainable construction and includes traditional exposed mass-timber, post & beam construction, and a low pitch long-span roof. Designed by a local artist, the story of the land and City is portrayed by translucent graphic film onto the glazing around the event space. This modern take of the traditional stain-glass window can be viewed from the Gallery above. The proposed design references the stadium and older structures that were built throughout the City’s history, with the prominent structural cross-bracing visible on the front facade. Community is the primary focus, hence why the layout is purposefully adaptable and functional for a diverse range of events, such as conventions, weddings, cultural events/concerts, children’s play, emergency shelter, etc. The building acts as a catalyst for economic development and leads by example for environmental sustainability, community well-being and social inclusion.
