The proposed Ski Lodge at Powder Mountain is a 2-story concrete and steel structure with wood and copper cladding which steps up the site, working with the natural topography. The materials were selected for their capacity for change and transformation over time. The board-formed textural concrete with wood cladding brings in the context of the region’s barn and cabin vernacular, and the copper evokes the mining history of the area and will patina over time through weathering. The architecture sets the tone for future development in terms of its sustainable design approach and how it engages the site and context.
