The purpose of this workshop was to communicate and gather input from Cambridge Bay community members, industry and Government employees on suitable building designs for the North. The event also introduced SAIT team members to the community and provided a walk-through virtual tour of designs implemented in the Green Building Technology research lab. This workshop was designed to refine ideas generated during earlier workshops through better understanding past and ongoing local energy efficiency projects.

INUIT ARCHITECHTURE WORKSHOP
LAND VISIONING WORKSHOP
This land-based visioning exercise was designed to better understand the relationship between our future cultural workshop and museum and the landscape that it will live in. PI/KHS staff and Board of Elders gathered at the future location of the new cultural campus to consider the importance of building this new cultural campus from a strong foundation of language and land. Questions asked of the group during the workshop included:
What do you know about this piece of land? How does it change throughout the seasons? Is there a lot of snow drifting in the winter? How high does the water go in the spring and summer?
Where should we place the buildings and surrounding infrastructure?
Where should outdoor cultural activities take place?
How do we enter the site? Where should the parking lot be?
How do we revegetate the site once construction is finished? What do you recommend?
