A WORLD-CLASS DESIGN

40,000-square feet on four levels with bridges connecting to the WAG on each level

This world-class cultural landmark is designed by Michael Maltzan Architecture, one of North America’s leading firms. Selected through an international architectural competition, Maltzan’s design is shaped by his experiences meeting people in the North. His design is inspired by the landscapes, light, and peoples of the North, and reflects the forms and spirits of Inuit art.

Maltzan is working with associate architect, Manitoba’s Cibinel Architecture Ltd.
