Squamish Adventure Centre

The Squamish Adventure Centre is a combined visitor centre, outdoor sports museum and economic development office. On the outskirts of Squamish, British Columbia, the Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada, the Centre beckons the 2 million visitors who travelthe highway each year between Vancouver and Whistler, which were the joint sites for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Elliptical in plan, with wing-like roofs that hover above transparent walls, the building was created to inspire visitors with the spirit of the coastal mountains. The project was commissioned by the District of Squamish to catalyze its transformation from lumber town to cultural centreĀ
