Department of Canadian Heritage at the Canadian Pavilion

October 18, 2016

The thrill of victory

As host country for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, the Department of Canadian Heritage wanted a one-of-a-kind national pavilion to showcase the country’s Olympic feats and cultural heritage and promote travel and tourism. We created a 100% green, 5,000-square-foot structure packed with games, activities and memorabilia celebrating Canadian sports excellence and heritage.

Guests of all ages could face off in simulated winter sports competition, enjoy photo opportunities with athletes and the Olympic mascot, view the actual Olympic and Paralympic torches, and be inspired by stories of Canadian history and sports triumph. More than 110,000 visitors toured the Canadian Pavilion, with 7,178 guests on opening day.

Gallery Description: For the 2012 London Olympic Games, we designed and built two separate areas inside Canada House, a historical building on Trafalgar Square. The first provided the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade an area where they could conduct business during the games. The second, for the Canadian Olympic Committee, offered a place where Canadian athletes and their families could relax and get a taste of home.
