Calgary’s Sturgess Architecture has been selected to design the 30,000 square foot FireWorks, the Canadian Fire Discovery Centre. To be located in Vermilion, Alberta, the interpretive centre will display on firefighting practices, procedures and equipment, as well as interactively demonstrate on fire’s science, behaviour in nature, and safety issues associated with it. Construction is slated for spring 2004 and the Centre will open in 2005 in conjunction with Alberta’s Centnennial celebrations. Established in 1993, Sturgess Architecture has designed Banff Town Hall, Chuzenji Kanaya Hotel, Nikko National Park, Japan, and the Yukon Visitor Reception Centre in Whitehorse, among other projects.
