Dawson Creek’s Art Gallery winner of B.C. Best Buildings Contest

“The Dawson Creek Art Gallery, a converted grain elevator, reflects the settlement of the area after hardy Marquis wheat was introduced in 1909 [sic],” the Architecture Foundation of British Columbia writes while explaining their decision.

Other winners within the Northern Region include Rolla Pub in Rolla, B.C. and the North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward, B.C.

“The North Pacific Cannery at Port Edward, near Prince Rupert, is the most intact survivor from the era when out port canneries were complete towns and fishing was a huge part of the province’s resource economy.”

Among the top 25 buildings in four regions across the province, a panel of judges sifted through an igloo, shed over hot springs and police barracks.

The 25 buildings were then narrowed to three in each region by the panel.
