One of the world’s foremost education centres for palaeontology, the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum rests on the ancient Pipestone Creek bonebed in Northern Alberta. The museum’s geometrically-complex exposed roof mimics a dinosaur’s skeleton – prefabricated modular timber panels are supported by angled glue-laminated beams, linked with custom computer-cut laminated plywood connection “nodes”.
