Farrow Commences Design for Whistler Summit Centre
Farrow has been engaged to create the new community heart for the permanent residents of whistler on a 70-acre site in the centre of the Whistler, British Columbia. The Whistler Summit Centre include a new, fully integrated, environmentally sustainable campus, which radiates learning for all ages, health, wellness, arts, culture and create a community common where people can mingle, build and thrive.
This project, similar to the Aspen Institute, will create a new benchmark of how communities should create education, collaboration, community, innovation and health hubs; places that cause health. As a firm, Farrow have worked over the years to move beyond siloed learning and healing community centres to those that blur the boundaries and create the conditions where people can thrive, such as its design for the South African Health Promoting Lifestyle Centre Project.
The Whistler Summit Centre will infuse similar ideas into a model that is relevant to our planet, our health and our communities.
