dc.description.abstract Wooden grain elevators are purely functional buildings that store, dry, and move grain. These buildings were first introduced to the Canadian Prairies at the turn of the twentieth century and quickly became an icon, sometimes referred to as the cathedral of the prairies. With the improvement of production and technology the number of wooden grain elevators have dramatically decreased. A portion of the Trans Canada Trail in Western Manitoba, that was once a rail line, is investigated to establish a deeper understanding of the eleven remaining elevators and their context. The intention of this practicum is to re-envision the role of these grain elevators and to incorporate them into a regional narrative. A proposed design is developed to save the remaining elevators focusing on ideas of memory, growth, and identity in order to connect communities and visitors to the landscape’s past, present, and future. en_US
