Canadian firm Sturgess Architecture have designed a glass viewing platform to cantilever over a glacial valley in the Columbian Icefields of Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada.
Called Brewster’s Discovery Walkway, the project also involves creating a 400 metre walkway in the mountainside.
The project is due to open to the public early next year.

Here's a little bit of text from Sturgess Architecture:
Sturgess Architecture, RJC and PCL teamed up to design the winning competition for Brewster’s newest tourist attraction in Alberta, Canada.
Overlooking the Sunwapta Valley along the Columbian Icefields in Alberta, Canada, the Discovery Walk is envisioned as an extension of the landscape; one that projects from the shear face of the mountainside to not only shelter and educate visitors, but to expose and astound them. The project weaves a continuous thread of experience through unified geometric and material forms, defining the Discovery Walk not only as a singular destination, but as a catalyst and gateway where guests experience the untouched environment in a way they never have before.
