TED Elevate

A Spotlight for
Canadian Parks

With 16 other students, I helped design environmental graphics for ELEVATE for the TED2016 conference in Vancouver. Inspired by high-alpine shelters and the backcountry winter experience that BC mountains offer, the ELEVATE huts provide a special platform and a unique point of conversation for TEDsters to share ideas between various sessions of the conference. The ELEVATE shelters – each 16 feet by 30 feet long – were designed using LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber), a mass timber product donated by METSÄ. The structures were fabricated with CNC technology and erected on site in two days.

Design Build Research (DBR) is a registered non-profit organization facilitated by MGA. It is independent from academic institutions, and provides hands-on design experience for students, recent grads and retired architects from architecture and interior design.
