All Wood

All wood and very eco-friendly up in northern Canada. These are some shots of the Yukon Suspension Bridge and welcoming center located in northern British Columbia. They set out to prove that the entire center could be constructed completely out of wood and look badass at the same time.

Probably a little bit of a freaky walk but the views must be killer.

The weather conditions can get pretty nasty and wood seemed to be the most logical. You can't really pour concrete in -30 degree temps. And take a look around. The location is amazing however rather remote.

They took great pride in minimizing any negative impact due to the development. Rain water is contained on the site and in the summer months they get so much natural light that there is very little need to run a ton of electricity. Thursday is my guest showing over at Fred Flare as well.
