The world needs creative, inspired people to lead every sector of society and for 75 years, The Banff Centre has produced those leaders. Look closely at those who create art, build businesses, and lead institutions in your community and you will see the impact of the Banff experience.
The Banff Centre Revitalization project is building an environment for creativity, innovation, and leadership. It will inspire exceptional artists and thinkers; fostering the leaders Canada needs for vital sustainable communities.
At the heart of the Centre’s plans for revitalization is the creation of a major new learning facility. At the physical centre of our 43-acre property, the Kinnear Centre for Creativity and Innovation will re-define the flow of vibrant activity and provide convenient access to spaces and services most needed by conference planners and participants.
The west side of the Kinnear Centre faces the Bourgeau Range, and will feature the new Shaw Communications Inc. Outdoor Amphitheatre, specially designed for performances and outdoor learning activities. With formal seating for up to 500, the amphitheatre will be oriented to maximize views of the surrounding mountain ranges and sky.
Designed specifically to meet diverse needs, the Kinnear Centre will feature new flexible learning and meeting spaces and enhanced audio-visual equipment, innovative multi-function spaces for special events, and informal gallery areas to showcase the results of the Centre’s creative programs.
The architecture is designed to bring the beauty of our surroundings into the space, with expansive windows that embrace the mountains around us, bringing natural beauty inside. The building is set amidst the awe-inspiring expanse of the Bow Valley, including the Rundle and Bourgeau mountain ranges.
A variety of multi-disciplinary meeting spaces will meet every need for small group break-out rooms, large group plenary sessions, and exhibit booths. Equipped with leading edge communications and presentation technology, the building will include both wired and wireless options throughout.
The Maclab Café will also be located in the Kinnear Centre, as well as the new home of the Paul D. Fleck Library & Archives, showcasing the Centre’s rich history and improving access to the library’s learning resources.
To respect our place in the park, and to demonstrate environmental leadership, the building will seek LEED®(Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ certification, an international benchmark for design, construction, and operation of high environmental performance buildings.
Projects with LEED® certification must meet prerequisites in six categories: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and innovation in design.
