City of Winnipeg
Completed in 2000
The Centennial Pool project entailed an upgrade to the building envelope, the addition of clerestory lighting in the pool area, a canopy over the front entrance to provide protection as well as provision for barrier free access through the addition of a ramp. The graceful arc of the canopy mimics the arc of a diver. The stainless steel shimmers in daylight as water does but provides, with the brick, a barrier to the harsh climate which is both architecturally pleasing and durable.
