Taking formal cues from the local geology and the sports they inspire, this canopy creates a first impression for Whistler visitors arriving by highway coach. When viewed from a distance, the overall form of the shelter reveals references to composite ski design, while at closer range the patterning of columnar basalt becomes evident in the fractal arrangement of its glue-laminated timbers. Integrated lighting and lack of vertical screens promote visibility and ease of passage. The final structure and its siting accommodate natural pedestrian and vehicle flows while providing a comfortable and magnetic all-season shelter.
