Audain Art Museum, British Columbia by Patkau Architects

In the ski town of Whistler in British Columbia, the Audain Art Museum displays a private collector’s extensive art collection. The Canadian architecture firm Patkau Architects created a a work that is at once in harmony and at odds with the building’s forest setting.
