Goat Island Classroom and Interpretive Centre




This project is made with local trees bent to form the structural ribs. Solar panels provide electricity and a greenhouse at one end purifies waste water using solar aquatics. It houses a Mi'kmaq interpretive centre and a classroom for Mi'kmaq studies. The long building is designed to sit in the path of an abandoned roadway, to avoid disturbing new ground in an area with many ancient burial sites.
