Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut 15 in Calgary

Alberta College of Art and Design 1407-14th Avenue N.W. Calgary Alberta

Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut 15 is an award-winning exhibition that represented Canada at the 14th International Venice Biennale in Architecture. Arctic Adaptations is a team-based project initiated and led by Lateral Office of Toronto, an experimental design practice that operates at the intersection of architecture, landscape, and urbanism. The exhibition surveys a century of Arctic architecture, an urbanizing present, and a projective near future of adaptive architecture in Nunavut. Arctic Adaptations features interactive architecture models, photography, and topographical maps of the 25 communities of Nunavut, as well as Inuit carvers’ masterful scale models of some of the best-known buildings in the territory.

The exhibition runs from January 21 – March 12 with an opening reception on Jan 21 from 5-7pm.

Illingworth Kerr Gallery, Alberta College of Art and Design, 1407-14th Avenue N.W., Calgary Alberta
