Douglas Cardinal: Walk Through Architecture

Douglas Cardinal: Walk Through Architecture

The Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design is pleased to announce that the 2020-21 Frank Gehry International Visiting Chair in Architectural Design is Douglas Cardinal, OC, FRAIC, a renowned Canadian architect known both for his inspiring designs and for his advocacy for the rights and dignity of Indigenous peoples. Cardinal will give a series of four public lectures, in collaboration with the Daniels Faculty, throughout his appointment as Gehry Chair.

This event is the fourth of these public lectures and will be an intensive discussion about Douglas Cardinal's design of the Canadian Museum of History. An important part of Pierre Elliot Trudeau’s vision to create symbols of nationhood, the museum was created to enshrine all of the cultures of Canada. The museum is rich in symbolism, and unique in its eloquent use of curves. It is the most visited building in Canada, with more than one million visitors each year. It is consistently chosen as a stage to host world leaders visiting the Nation’s Capital on official business.
