The West Edmonton Mall Ice Palace Greenhouse

Modern Places in a Post-Apocalyptic Edmonton Eutopia

One of my favourite things is reimagining mundane spaces as opportunities for abundance. A fun question to ask is, “How would a post-apocalyptic Edmonton reuse this space?” What’s possible here?

We’ve all been there: shopping for the holidays, walking from one end of the Mall to the other, feet aching, arms filled with consumerism. Who hasn’t thought, “If only I could get a little fresh vegetable pick-me-up?”

Let me present to you The WEM Ice Palace Greenhouse! Marvel at the melons, tour the turnips, and browse the Brussels sprouts! With its glass dome and terraced upper-level hanging gardens, the West Edmonton Mall Ice Palace Greenhouse is sure to be an Edmonton post-apocalyptic utopian hit!
