PotashCorp Playland Architectural Enhancement

Site: Kinsmen Park, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Collaborators: PUBLIC, Space2Place Landscape Architecture, City of Saskatoon

A rejuvenated public park in Saskatoon becomes a site dedicated to family, fun and community. ALTO™ panels decorate the buildings, adding bright pops of color and interpretive panels to dress up the otherwise plain concrete façade.

The visual storytelling panels, illustrating the history and importance of potash in Saskatoon, feature graphic elements inspired by potash mining like the rings of underground boring equipment.
