Banff Springs Memorial
Banff Springs Memorial
concept
March 2014

For this project, I reconsider how meaning is ascribed into landmarks of national importance. The intent is to create a memorial - a place - that redefines the hot spring as a ceremonial ground.

By daylighting this layered history and bringing these narratives to the foreground, this project reconsiders the meaning of Park spaces in Canada and re-inscribes these places as important cultural landscapes that embody meaning beyond areas of sublime significance rooted in romantic notions of travel, leisure, and the picturesque.
