Alabaster is one of three varieties of ancient stone that play a significant role in the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, the other two being Tyndall stone and basalt.
The Museum’s ramps are clad in translucent white alabaster. Quarried in Spain, it is beautifully patterned with veins that might suggest blood vessels or other organic forms. Antoine Predock, the architect who designed the building, has described the ramps as “a ribbon of circulation” through the building. Alabaster, he notes, “has mythic associations both sacred and utilitarian.” The poster features some of the Museum’s alabaster ramps seen from above.
