INUINNAIT CULTURAL CAMPUS
We are building a cultural campus dedicated to the documentation, revitalization and mobilization of Inuinnait knowledge. The design of this space bridges traditional principles of Inuit architecture with cutting-edge technologies and materials. We are beginning the campus with a pilot 1100 sq ft cultural workspace and outdoor activities areas. We will forefront the use of natural vegetation and landscaping to mitigate the impacts of climate change.
CULTURAL WORK SPACE
We are designing a pilot cultural work space to trial sustainable building materials and technologies. This 1100 sq ft. workshop meshes Inuit architecture with modern energy efficiency measures and technologies. It is a self-contained cultural hub, designed to facilitate traditional activities such meat and hide preparation, tool making, and sewing. It is informed by the experiences and needs of community members and Elders, and is designed to be a site of ongoing cultural innovation.
Completion of the workshop is scheduled for October 2022.
