Banff Centre Parkade
The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity started as a drama course in 1933. Since then it has grown into an institutional behemoth sitting on the side of Tunnel Mountain. And while a thriving forum for the arts is indicative of a great society, the institutional infrastructure that accompanies it can be imposing. Hence, the parkade sitting under the music facility may be the first exposure a visitor has to the Banff Centre.
A parkade is often deemed necessary to manage motor vehicles and is utilitarian in its design, the one at the Banff Centre being no exception. And although it fulfills its function, it's a good example of the contrast between God's creation and man's.
