Cloverdale Rec Centre in Canadian Architect

Canadian Architect has profiled the Cloverdale Recreation Centre, hailing it as a building that “sets a new standard for community facilities.”

The article goes on to say:

“Fundamental to the design was the use of uniform curved wooden trusses. Varying their orientation allowed the interior spaces to achieve heights needed to meet programmatic objectives and contribute to an incredibly fluid, evocative architectural expression.”
