Capital Paper Recycling Facility

Calgary, AB

The project (while with Zeidler Partnership Architects) is a paper, cardboard and plastic recycling facility together with administrative offices located in South Foothills commercial districts in Calgary. The project reflects the “recycling” function of its users by mimicking the roof form to a giant paper origami, while the office component uses variable colored glass to mimicking the coloring of the recycling bottles. The building features various size overhead doors providing easy access to shipping and receiving functions of the building which because of changing volumes of recycling materials adjust daily.

I led the design for Capital Paper while in the employ of Zeidler Partnership Architects.
