Sturgess Architecture has designed the winning competition entry for Brewster’s newest tourist attraction in Alberta, Canada, the Discovery Walk. The design is expected to be built by the end of 2011. More renderings after the break.

Overlooking the Sunwapta Valley along the Columbian Icefields in Alberta, Canada, the Discovery Walk is envisioned as an extension of the landscape; one that projects from the shear face of the mountainside to not only shelter and educate visitors, but to expose and astound them.

The project weaves a continuous thread of experience through unified geometric and material forms, defining the Discovery Walk not only as a singular destination, but as a catalyst and gateway where guests experience the untouched environment in a way they never have before.
