Glenbow Museum: A Museum Re-imagined

Located at the corner of Stephen Avenue and 1st Street SE in Calgary, Glenbow is an anchor to the public realm of Stephen Avenue and Olympic Plaza and in physical partnership with Arts Commons and the Telus Convention Centre. The museum is at the heart of the cultural precinct of the city.

Robert Claiborne brings insight to the revitalization of the museum. The redesign of Glenbow has provoked questions about the importance of a building exterior in communicating the purpose and intent of the building. Should a building communicate its purpose? In an age of expanding social awareness, how does a museum give full account of itself? The presentation explores the building’s unique, new envelope design and how it establishes a conversation with the city and becomes an active participant with the public realm.
