Ecology and Design

September 24, 2009

What really struck me from the first class was the video at the end. The project about the seven major mountains of the area being made into buildings is really cool. One of if not the most interesting design I have seen. After class I came up with an idea inspired from that video. Winnipeg has been thinking about building an artificial mountain for a ski resort for some time. So what if a building was made in the shape of a mountain. So the side of the building becomes the actual slope to go down. And the resort hotel is right under, creating a giant man made ski resort. I don’t know if this is at all possible but I thought it was a cool idea.
