The earlier building on the Fort Whyte Alive site responded to the windswept prairie landscape with the simple gesture of an enormous sloping cedar roof facing north, with glazing to the south. The cedar has now weathered much to the building’s benefit, and the building now shows its roots in the many old windswept and abandoned barns in the prairies.
