Of all his creations, Roger Margerum is most proud of a simple, award-winning steel park shelter located just downstream from the Ambassador Bridge. “I particularly like it because it achieves the Mies van der Rohe principle of ‘less is more,’” he says. “It is pure shelter with no walls, heat, or lighting. On each building elevation, there are two elegantly intersected lines with one horizontal roof beam supported by one vertical column.”
