    IDC Tour: Esker Foundation Gallery (1 non-IDCEC hour)


    For the home of Calgary’s largest privately-funded, non-commercial gallery, the designers – Lois Wellwood and Marta Sensidoni, from Kasian Architecture Interior Design and Planning Inc – were challenged to create a space that referenced the foundation’s name, esker, meaning a winding ridge of gravel formed by a glacier. The facility also needed to accommodate the gallery’s mandate to deliver innovative art exhibitions and educational events. A custom fibreglass portal reminiscent of a glacier provides a dramatic entrance into the space, and undulating ceilings, reinforce the esker theme. A hovering ‘nest’ is visible from the street below, inviting visitors into the gallery. Join fellow IDA Calgary members to tour this multi-awarding project!
