I would bet they are currently working with a local Architecture firm. So it is really a story about nothing.

It is wrong to claim to be an Architect if you are not but other than that, I believe that anyone can DESIGN anything. It just cant get built without a registered Architect and Engineer stamp.

If I recall, the Architect designing the Inuit Art Gallery addition is not registered in Manitoba. That is why they are working with a local firm - Cibinel. This is likely what is happening here.
its not quite what is happening here...he's not registered anywhere....but no rules have been broken....it is surprising that a building as complex as this would not have someone with more experience behind it...if I was the financing group putting my $70m on the line I would want someone with experience...but its their choice.

at least he's a Winnipegger and isn't stamping drawings done in China...that is a way bigger issue if you ask me.
