Its design is a specific and sustainable response to the building’s unique context - the spectacular Canadian desert found south of the OkanaganValley in Osoyoos, British Columbia. This 1,600-acre parcel of land, belonging to the Osoyoos Indian Band is the largest intact remnant of this unique habitat in Canada.The building features indoor and outdoor exhibits that honour the cultural history of the Band and are designed to be an extension of the remarkable site. The desert landscape flows over the building’s green roof and is held back by the largest rammed-earth wall in Canada. The partially submerged building is sited very specifically to focus the visitor’s eye away from the encroaching development of Osoyoos, with the height of the wall set to create a layered view of the desert, receding to the riparian landscape and the mountains in the distance. The project’s ambitious approach towards sustainable design also includes the use of bluestain pine, a habitable green roof, inslab radiant cooling and heating, low flow fixtures, waterless urinals and facilities for the Band’s award-winning rattlesnake research project.prémios:2007 Aboriginal Tourism Association of BC, Inspirational Leadership Award2007 RAIC Award of Excellence, Innovation in Architecture2007 AIBC Lieutenant Governor of BC Medal2007 Canadian Wood CouncilBC, Wood Design Green Award2007 BC Ready-Mix Concrete Association Award Link's:http://www.nkmipdesert.comhttp://www.hbbharc.com/ GoogleEarth: Não é incrível tudo o que pode caber dentro de um lápis?...
