The Bow, Calgary’s tallest tower – EnCana and Cenovus Headquarters, Alberta
Design: Foster + Partners with Zeidler Partnership

The Bow Calgary
This headquarters tower is the tallest building in Canada outside of Toronto. The architecture is like an inverted Swiss Re tower, the logic to the form is robust: the building faces south, curving towards the sun to take advantage of daylight and heat, maximising views o the Rocky Mountains. By turning the convex facade into the prevailing wind, the structural loading is minimised, reducing the amount of steel needed. Clever building.
