BATEMAN ART AND ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION CENTRE Victoria, BC

The Bateman Centre is one of the first ‘living buildings’ designed in North America – aiming to restore, rather than degrade, its environment. The building comprises a nature museum, archive, art gallery, and a research and conference centre. The project includes the restoration of six hectares of wetlands that will provide a major carbon-sink for southern Vancouver Island, as well as spawning areas for wild salmon.
