Lethbridge, Alberta

CASA is the dynamic new community arts centre for Lethbridge replacing the former Bowman Arts Centre. Large community rooms and studios provide bright, modern, and flexible spaces to meet the growing needs of the city’s many craft guilds, artists and community groups. The University of Lethbridge is an integrated partner in the facility, as numerous practice and rehearsal studios have been provided through educational spaces for the Faculty of Music’s Conservatory Program. Adjacent to Galt Gardens in the downtown, the form of the facility anticipates a future adjacent Performing Arts Centre to the west, while creating a large south-facing entrance plaza for the City, sheltered from wind, for special events and community gatherings.
