Designing the Royal Alberta Museum

The Royal Alberta Museum is designed to capture and express Alberta’s history, landscapes, and promising potential. The project scope includes long-term natural and human history exhibition galleries; a children’s gallery and bug room; curatorial, research, and collection spaces; a feature gallery; and associated support space totalling 22,000 net square metres. Attendees will learn about the design inspiration, the major benchmarks for success, and some of the innovative features that led to the realization of this LEED Gold–certified museum. This session will focus on the process and creative thinking that went into the design.
