A LEGACY FOR OUR COMMUNITY
The architecture of the WAG Inuit Art Centre evokes beautiful Northern landscapes and will be a legacy to inspire and engage generations to come.
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.
