Local businesses and community organizations donated time, money and material to ensure that this project would be a success. The pavilion illustrates the devastation of the 2003 Okanagan Mountain Fire and serves a dual purpose. The structure acts as a gathering place for public and private events. It also serves as a public education centre to raise awareness of the impact of the Fire, the Mountain Pine Beetle and the fragile nature of the woodland setting in which it is situated. The design concept was conceived as a journey through the Okana- gan Mountain Park and created a path representing the forest’s lifecycle, naturally occurring environmental impacts and the resulting rejuvenation of the forest. Its focus is on the surrounding environment and treats the struc- ture as an integral part of the forest. The pavilion functions in unison with nature and the structure is fully engaged with the landscape.
