Urban infrastructure can be iconic. Look no further than the Kathleen Andrews Transit Garage in Edmonton, a 50,000-square-metre complex with space for 300 buses, along with maintenance bays, offices and training areas. Toronto firm Gh3* — a master at making bold statements with industrial builds — adorned the KATG in austere, monochrome finishes: corrugated stainless-steel walls and polished concrete floors.

But it also included novel flourishes, like five abstracted light boxes on the roof and a restored heritage smokestack, which appear like follies in an otherwise stark landscape. Everything about the KATG is monumental — to wonderful effect.

Team: Pat Hanson with Louise Clavin, Elise Shelley, Jeffrey Deng, Joel Di Giacomo and Raymond Chow
