Kinnear Centre for Creativity, Banff Centre

The Banff Centre is situated within Banff National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is an interdisciplinary campus and a global leader for creative innovation in aesthetic, social, economic, political, environmental and scientific fields.

In 2004, Diamond Schmitt Architects were commissioned to develop a master plan for the campus that would provide an integrated system of roadways, walkways, signage and infrastructure. The plan preserves the natural landscape and wildlife habitat while providing a functional campus and accommodating the projected growth of both the program and the recreational facilities.

Phase one, the Sally Borden Building, was completed in July, 2007 and phase two, the Kinnear Centre for Creativity and Innovation, was completed in July, 2010.

  1. Hey Younes,
    Love these! I spent two summers + working at the Banff Centre — and met my wife there to boot. So it’s got a lot of fond memories for me. But back in ’80 and ’81, it looked NOTHING like this! Did you shoot these for the Centre or for your portfolio?
