Brewster's Discovery Walkway Set for Jasper National Park

Canadian architectural firm Sturgess Architects have won a contest to design a glass viewing platform over the Columbian Icefields of Alberta's Jasper National Park. Sturgess Architecture developed Brewster's Discovery Walkway, set to open next year, in conjunction with engineering and construction firms RJC and PCL.

Brewster's Discovery Walkway will be made of glass and is designed similar to the viewing platform at the Grand Canyon. Brewster's Discovery Walkway also calls for a 400 meter walkway to be carved into the mountain, a pathway which should feature some marvelous views in its own right. Glass viewing platforms currently seem to be all the rage. I wouldn't be surprised to see other countries adopt this design for their natural landmarks. Could you imagine a viewing platform atop the Alps or the Andes? If you can dream, someone else can probably do it.
