John Fry Sports Park Pavilion, Edmonton

Second Place in Design Competition for the John Fry Sports Park Pavilion organized by the City of Edmonton.

During the design process one of main objectives was to create a clear distinction between open public space and private areas of the change rooms and public washrooms.

The level differences within the pavilion give the opportunity to introduce double height multipurpose space as a focal point of the building. South oriented skylight above the space provides natural light for public activities.

The connection and relationship with surrounding landscape informed the design process resulting in spiral massing of the pavilion. It naturally merges with the site and allows surrounding green areas as well as park pathways to continue onto the pavilion's accessible roof. The green roof and boardwalk becomes gradually the extension of the park.

Proposed palette of materials include corten steel cladding, double glazed high performance glass with low E coating, exposed architectural concrete, polished concrete and wood.
