Edmonton is one of the largest northern urban centers in the world. Located in Canada, Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta. The city has a strong history as a trade center, and it served as the last major stop for the Klondikers during the Gold Rush. This is why we Edmontonions call our city "The Gateway to the North"

Please enjoy my perspective of one of of the fastest growing urban areas this side of China.

Old Meets New

What was once a dark and windowless structure has been gutted and turned into a sea of sunlight, glass and exposed building elements. The marble floors that were covered with carped sometime in the 70's has been re-exposed. Damage caused by the carpet glue and construction was not repaired but instead everything was finished in this, as is, state. The floating lilypad lights are dotted throughout the building. The main atrium is the most interesting spot in the building as the lights are layered at varying heights. On the main floor there is an Italian cafe that features an amazing selection of Gelato. All that is missing is the people, but they will come as the University slowly finishes and fills the space.
