Shaw Conference Centre, Edmonton

I’m continuing to have boatloads of fun photographing outstanding Edmonton architecture. Today’s victim was/is the Shaw Conference Centre or, “The Shaw” as most Edmontonians have come to know it.  The Shaw was designed by local architect James Wensley and opened in 1983 (Wow, I can’t believe it’s been that long!). It’s home to countless special events, corporate dinners, concerts and (you guessed it) conferences.

I took this photo just today. It was a long time coming – a shot that took a fews tries (over several different days) to get ‘just right’. I always planned it as a follow-up to the one below it (blog post here), which I took last year. Click here to view my Shaw Conference Centre Photo Gallery.
