TBT: Fort Whyte Interpretive Centre

MMP project, the Fort Whyte Interpretive Centre was built in 1983 as, “an exciting place where school children will learn about nature and its relevance to daily living.” The cedar clad building has weathered nicely over the past 33 years, and now shows its roots in the many old windswept and abandoned barns scattered throughout the prairies.

If you’re looking for a great write-up on the project, the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation has one, and can be found here. Also, please see above for a peek at some original building elevations that were scanned and sent over by a former/returning summer student of ours (thanks George!).
