Located in Edmonton's Borden Park, the Borden Pavilion by gh3 blends into its nearby, natural landscape. Boasting a circular shape and a mirrored facade, this structure reflects its topography and almost blends into the greenery of its forest surroundings.

Toronto-based design firm gh3's concept aims to revamp the 100-year-old park that has been opened since 1906. Playing with curvilinear forms, the designers create an architecture piece that mirrors the beauty of nature.

The Borden Pavilion houses the park's vending machines and public washroom spaces while providing its visitors with gorgeous and vast views. In addition to its striking views and geometric construction details, this structure features a reflective glass coating that adds to its sustainable design concept.
