Architecture Monday

Ok, I’m pre-inclined to like this building.  While it’s a mountaineering centre, with what seems to be some museum functions too, my main inclination comes from its main tall spike:  it’s a climbing gym.

Plenty to like here… sculptural design that fits its function within, with a skin pattern that reminds of the nearby mountains, and with a number of lovely little spatial vignettes inside.  The only boo for me is the climbing wall itself – it seems a bit plain to my eyes.

Overall, this is one cool building.  Nice work.
