Project Description

It is a multi-use building includes a “dry-land” training facility for the Edmonton Speed Skating Association, a multi-purpose room, a public observation room for speed skating, an exterior public observation platform for observing the North Saskatchewan River Valley, plus standard service facilities such as food canteen, washrooms, equipment maintenance workshop, and zamboni garage.

The building bends slightly (5.2 degrees) at each grid line to create the curved form over the length of the pavilion. The ribbon windows on the north elevation provide thin panoramic views of the park beyond while shielding users from the cold north side.
