The Manitoba Association of Architects is marking its 100th anniversary by celebrating the past, present and future of architecture in the province.

From May 28-31, the MAA will play host to the national RAIC Festival of Architecture — an annual conference for architects across Canada — under the theme The Next Century: Go Flat Out.

“Since Winnipeg last hosted the festival in 2002, we’ve undergone a bit of an architectural renaissance,” said MAA president Kent Woloschuk. “With a host of new, local award winning projects, there is a resurgence of enthusiasm within our architectural community and we are proud to share this with our colleagues from across Canada.”

Woloschuk adds the four-day event will be an opportunity to reflect on the foundations of the community and current period of revitalization while looking forward at how the MAA shapes the future.

Opening night will include a keynote address by world-renowned architect Antoine Predock at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
