Great Plains Recreation Facility – Calgary AB

OAA Awards 2017 Design Excellence Finalist 
 Calgary’s new recreation facility program aims to develop centres that will provide accessible recreation opportunities and accommodate a variety of sports at different levels of play. The Great Plains tournament facility features two multi-purpose rinks along with a provision for a future twin pad, and brings together ice sport enthusiasts from across the city for hockey, sledge hockey, ringette, and figure skating. An inversion of the typical ice arena plan creates a light filled, uplifting central social space that elevates the form of the ‘Hockey Rink’ to having meaningful social and civic space.
