Station Y
by Ruth Oh — Alternate to Winner

Station “Y” is a ski patrol and operations center located on a steep site overlooking a scenic mountain view and ski resort. The complex’s primary function is to be a refuge and designed to feel welcoming, safe, and comfortable for both its daily staff as well as occasional visitors. The green solution to the design problem is to focus on using “low-tech” sustainable strategies and optimizing user experience.

by Scott Magic — Finalist

The primary act of architecture is to enclose, to make shelter within the infinity of nature. In an act of human confrontation, the Backcountry Ski Patrol + Operation Center will emerge from the weathered landscape like a man-made Caldera.

Granite Point: Back-Country Ski Patrol and Operations Center
by Anthony Varela — Finalist

Granite Point offers the local ski patrol and maintenance teams a strong foundation in which to head up all mountain related operations. The building was continually designed with the end users experience in mind through maximizing day lighting, temperature control, and many other sustainable principles. This project was created to challenge the traditional alpine design.
