Inspired by the Land

The Inuit Art Centre design is inspired by the landscape of the North. An architectural ideas competition for the new Centre attracted submissions by 65 architects from 13 countries. Michael Maltzan Architecture (Los Angeles) was selected and is working in conjunction with Cibinel Architecture (Winnipeg).

We invite the world to stand at the crossroads of land, culture and art within this breathtaking new space.
