    Fascinating comment:

    “ isn’t really ingrained in the town memory “


    Uncovering Frank Lloyd Wright’s Alberta creation

    Russell Hixson December 21, 2018






    “There’s a broader philosophical question about building in the national park,” said Jennifer LaForest, Banff development planner. “It was a bit of an anomaly and it didn’t exist for very long, but it sets us apart from other communities. It existed in a strange part of town history and isn’t really ingrained in the town memory and there isn’t really anyone around that remembers it.”
