Six architectural teams have been shortlisted by the Winnipeg Art Gallery to design its new Inuit Art and Learning Centre (IALC).
“We were very impressed by the wealth of responses from around the world to the call for expressions of interest,” said Stephen Borys, WAG’s executive director. “With such a large number of outstanding submissions — from fifteen countries — it was a challenging task to establish a short list.”
The six teams are: Will Bruder Architects and Peter Sampson Architecture Studio (Phoenix and Winnipeg), Diller Scofidio + Renfro (New York), Kengo Kuma and Associates (Tokyo), Michael Maltzan Architecture (Los Angeles), Patkau Architects/LM Architectural Group (Vancouver and Winnipeg), Preston Scott Cohen Inc. with number TEN architectural group (Boston and Winnipeg).
The WAG plans to announce the winning team for the design of the IALC in late October.
