The building is located in Canada’s Mont-Tremblant National Park and consists of three parts: an amphitheater, a space for service facilities and a discovery zone. It was created as a continuous band of rustic wood that unfolds into walls, a roof and a floor sheltered by a large canopy. Both the exterior and interior space feature a wide variety of wood species that reference the building’s pristine natural surroundings.

Its illuminated spaces create an interplay of volumes and an interesting relationship between the exterior and interior. Its richness in materials helps blend the Discovery Centre with its surroundings and exhibits a particular sensitivity to the unspoiled nature of Canada.
