The chosen team, selected as part of a school-wide design competition for the delivery of health services in Nunavut, will join a professional team from Pin Taylor Architects (Yellowknife) and the Qaujigiartiit Health Research Centre (Iqaluit) in developing Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut at 15, a territory-wide vision for architecture in service of health in the Northern region.
