The Audain Art Museum, located in Whistler BC, is carefully sited within a mature Pacific Northwest mountain landscape. The museum is a masterful work by Patkau Architects with landscape by PFS Studio and houses the private art collection of Michael Audain. His extraordinary collection includes both contemporary works and historic aboriginal art.
PFS Studio’s design nestles the building into a forested floodplain, situated along a well-travelled cultural route in Whistler Village. The landscape design protects the existing native forest while creating intimate outdoor spaces for displaying creative works and programmable spaces for special events and gatherings.
