University of Calgary Downtown Campus

ICPix shot some photos of a sensual building in downtown Calgary by Marshall Tittemore Architects in early September 2011.

The curved facade is made of zinc "scales" and it wraps the corner. This is a good catalyst for downtown Calgary. The Parkade is being constructed to the west and is part of this complex. If approved it will boast a "kinetic" facade which feature hundreds of "scales" on pivot joints that will ripple with the motion of the wind. Give us your comments on the building or the photography. Enjoy.
