Urban landscapes: one of the intriguing levels

EDMONTON CONFERENCE CENTRE, EDMONTON, ALBERTA

I went fishing in the archives and pulled this fascinating example of modern architecture onto the boat from back in 2012. I was in this western Canadian city for a trade show and had time to explore the conference centre, which opened in 1983. It’s an intriguing structure, built into a giant slope that, eventually, makes its way down to the North Saskatchewan River.
There are ten levels with water features, escalators and windowed ceilings – about 70 percent of the $82 million centre is underground – so I had a great time.
