An opportunity to showcase the unique character and beauty of Yukon as a “welcome home” to residents and as a truly memorable introduction to Yukon to those who are visiting or in transit. The focus is on the arts and culture of Yukon, its people and the beauty of the magnificent land. Colours throughout the terminal were selected from the signature painting by beloved Yukon artist Ted Harrison. A thematic masterplan for the terminal was prepared as context for all display and exhibit selections and also set the tone for subsequent renovations. A prime example of the use of a thematic masterplan in collaboration with a functional masterplan to bring order and meaning to design decisions.
