Insulated rammed earth makes the front facade of the Nk’Mip Desert Interpretive Centre in Osoyoos, British Columbia. The wall stretches 220 feet and stands 20 feet high. A suspended slab supports 100,000 lbs. of rammed earth above a 55 foot-long window. The wall’s alternating bands of colour blend with the surrounding desert and mountains. The new 18,000 square foot facility will feature a large exhibit area, a gift shop, and a research centre and is designed by Hotson Bakker Boniface Haden.
