Ground breaking today for new Inuit Art Centre at the Winnipeg Art Gallery designed by Michael Maltzan Architecture.

With the Inuit Art Centre, the Winnipeg Art Gallery looks North

PUBLISHED MAY 25, 2018

Four regions, across four thousand kilometres. And one building to bring them together. That’s the ambitious promise of the Winnipeg Art Gallery’s Inuit Art Centre, which officially broke ground on Friday.

The $65-million addition to the gallery, with a competition-winning design by Michael Maltzan Architecture of Los Angeles, will expand the downtown Winnipeg facility by 40,000 square feet. It will also represent, in concrete form, the WAG’s expanded mission as a hub for Inuit culture and Indigenous art in Canada. “It is a game-changing, museum-changing project,” WAG director Steven Borys said in a recent interview.

The building will add a new public entrance to the gallery’s monumental 1972 building, giving the museum a highly transparent new entrance and street-level café, but also opening up into a sequence of galleries and a theatre which will house educational programs, performance and interactive exhibitions. The architecture “is set up to create different experiences of Inuit art,” says Maltzan, “and to challenge conventions of how the work has been shown.”

Since Inuit art emerged from the North around 1950, the work – predominantly stone carvings and stone-cut printing – has generally been shown with an anthropological lens, as craft rather than as fine art. The WAG, which has the world’s largest public collection of Inuit art, is determined to challenge that, Mr. Borys says. “We’re dismantling a pedagogical construct of how we’ve looked at Inuit art,” he says. “The discussion has been very insular.”

Mr. Maltzan’s design is based on the understanding that contemporary Inuit art “is postwar, and evolving fast.” At the Inuit Art Centre ( IAC), contemporary work by Inuit artists will be a constant presence, and the centre will be curated by Inuit scholars. Heather Igloliorte, who is a co-chair of the WAG’s Indigenous Advisory Circle, will lead a team of four guest curators for the IAC’s inaugural shows in 2020. “By creating an Inuit curatorial team that represents each region of Inuit Nunangat” — the Inuit homeland, across the Canadian Arctic — “we’re really bringing four perspectives,” she says, “on how Inuit might present their work differently.”

The facility is designed to accommodate work in different media and a range of curatorial approaches. A three-storey “visible vault” lined in glass will put much of the WAG’s Inuit carvings on display, hinting at the breadth of that collection. Upward from there will be an “interactive theatre,” meant for public talks, educational programs and dialogues through videoconferencing with artists, elders, and community members in the North. Education spaces will move to the top floor. The IAC will connect to each of the levels of the WAG’s current facility, weaving Inuit art into each part of the institution.

And the showpiece of the new wing will be the Inuit Gallery, a curvaceous 8,000-square-foot space whose ceilings will reach as high as 10 metres. It will be sky-lit, very tall and very open. This is radical. While contemporary Inuit artists are working in varied media and at different scales – the IAC will present a projection work by Zacharias Kunuk, for instance -- the stone carvings that have ruled Inuit art tend to be small, and curatorial convention would place small work in small space. Yet “I’ve had the sense that art looks best in buildings that closely resemble the studio in which it was made,” says Mr. Maltzan, a distinguished architect who has designed a series of museum and gallery projects, most prominently a temporary location for the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

But on a trip to Nunavut with WAG staff, Mr. Maltzan learned “that a lot of stone small carvings are made outside.” So the IAC “must, in some way, represent something of the landscapes of the North – with a scale and an abstraction that insinuates something of the quality of being there.”

On the exterior, the new addition has the appearance of an iceberg: curving, somewhat irregular and predominantly white. Glass on the first two levels, facing the street, gives way to white masonry above. In this way it will slide onto the beloved existing WAG building by local architect Gustavo da Roza, which is wrapped in the pale Manitoba limestone known as Tyndall stone. The existing building “is basically a triangular object,” says Mr. Maltzan, “but it has a back, which is where the IAC will fit.”

The design of the IAC – on which Winnipeg’s Cibinel Architects are collaborating – has evolved since it was unveiled more than three years ago, becoming more open to the street and also more monumental. It will be an unflashy but beautiful object.

That tone, bold but respectful, seems fitting for the WAG’s mission of outreach and engagement. “It’s not just a new building to house an Inuit art collection,” says Dr. Igloliorte. “It’s so much more than that: It’s meant to be a space where Inuit feel like they have ownership and leadership over the direction of Inuit art, and to showcase the depth and breadth of Inuit art.”

The gallery, she suggests, will become a place of deep importance to the Inuit. “There is no capital of Inuit Nunangat,” Dr. Igloliorte argues. “This is one place we can all come together.”

Sweeping new plaza designed to engage
Brent Bellamy By: Brent Bellamy
Posted: 05/7/2018

The Winnipeg Jets’ playoff run has cast a spotlight on our downtown. Images of hockey-crazed fans dancing in the streets have caught the imagination of the country.

Next year, the whiteout celebration will move from its temporary setup to a permanent home at True North Square. The sweeping new plaza, anchored by a six-by-nine-metre video screen, has been planned to accommodate several thousand people for concerts, festivals and other public events, but understanding the potential scale of street parties, the event space has been designed to expand to incorporate Carlton Street to form a huge, block-long festival area set within the four towers of the development.

The long-term success of True North Square as a public space will be measured, however, not only by its function during NHL playoffs, but also by its ability to engage the city and the people who use it every other day of the year. Large public spaces can be a difficult challenge in low-density cities such as Winnipeg, particularly in a downtown that has been designed with much higher priority given to vehicles than pedestrians. Without a determined focus on bringing people to the site and keeping them there, large public spaces can become desolate and unsafe.

The design team of True North Square, Vancouver’s Perkins+Will and PFS Studio, and Winnipeg’s Architecture 49 and McGowan Russell, have developed a plan that grew uniquely from the public spaces outward. Pedestrian connectivity was first considered, establishing pathways and sight lines through the development that link the major buildings in the area, including the arena and convention centre.

The public space then was organized around this circulation, and finally, buildings were composed along the plaza to maximize pedestrian comfort. The towers twist as they rise, allowing afternoon sunlight to flood the courtyard, and are carefully positioned to block the prevailing winter wind and shield people from the noise of the surrounding streets.

Each of the four towers houses a unique function: office, hotel, rental apartments and condominiums. This diversity of use will help to ensure the public spaces stay more active beyond the workday, establishing a broader market for retailers, increasing sidewalk activity and improving the feeling of safety. A density of 288 hotel suites, 325 residences, and up to 1,500 office workers on the site every day will begin to establish a critical mass of population.

To design a public space that makes people linger, the edges of the site must be considered carefully. Like nervous boys hugging the gym walls at a school dance, we instinctively find comfort at the perimeter of a space. The edges that define True North Square are designed to welcome pedestrians, with high, fully transparent glass walls that allow views from the plaza, through interior spaces and to the streets on the other side.

Façades will be porous, with numerous entrances that invite people to move freely between inside and out. Interior spaces and the outdoor plaza will share similar plantings, materials and colour palettes, to break down the edges and further establish a seamless pedestrian flow between each.

Ground-floor uses have been carefully choreographed to attract people to the site and inspire pedestrian activity along the sidewalks and in the plaza. A glass skywalk connects all four buildings, and is designed to have direct, easily identifiable public access to the sidewalk. The apartment tower along Graham Avenue will have retail units at the skywalk and sidewalk levels housing boutique shops and restaurants.

The curved south building will be home to a unique 30,000-square-foot cutting-edge food hall experience, spread over two interconnected floors.

The market will be an important amenity for downtown living and an attraction across the city. It will house a locally focused, chef-driven market, artisanal food vendors, and specialty grocery and retail concepts. Seating will spill into the plaza and out from the second floor onto a sun-drenched outdoor patio, connected back to the main plaza by a terraced seating amphitheatre that overlooks the site.

To ensure buildings don’t turn their back on the surrounding sidewalks, entrances will be located on both the street and plaza sides. Smaller, outward facing plazas at each of the northern corners will be important spots for sidewalk patios and other functions that extend the activity of the square into rest of downtown. Graham Avenue, from the arena to True North Square, will be raised to the level of the sidewalk, helping to calm the speed of bus traffic and create a seamless pedestrian flow.

The design pays special attention to creating a layered experience that breaks the large site down to a pedestrian scale. The buildings sit on a four-storey podium, with active, landscaped rooftops, that visually enclose the space and create an intimacy at eye level. Vegetation, granite paving, a water feature and sculptural wood seating elements are all used to define smaller, more human-scale spaces within the large plaza.

True North Square was a rare opportunity to design a major urban public space all at once. It attempts to reconcile the difficult challenge of being a place for thousands of people when hosting major events, while maintaining the intimacy and welcoming character that will make it an active urban plaza every day.

If all the design ingredients work together successfully, it will demonstrate the value of pedestrian-first design and bring a dynamic new energy to downtown Winnipeg, even when the Jets are not in the playoffs.

Brent Bellamy is senior design architect for Number Ten Architectural Group.

Hartley Richardson and JRI president Curt Vossen announce $30 million food research and education facility in downtown Wpg. 4-story building scheduled to be up and operational by spring 2020.Richardson says it was "high priority" to build downtown. #cbcmb











RICHARDSON INNOVATION CENTRE
With its dramatic angular form of transparent glass and contrasting tyndall stone, the new Richardson Innovation Centre will project Richardson International’s commitment to community building and innovation in the heart of downtown Winnipeg. Designed for advanced food product development, the four-storey laboratory building will actively interact with its unique downtown location, serving as a catalyst for future pedestrian-oriented redevelopment between historic Portage and Main and the East Exchange District.

The 62,000 sq. ft. facility will create interest along Lombard Avenue with an assortment of pedestrian friendly landscaping features and unique views from the street into the spaces inside. The building’s orientation and strategic use of glass floods the interior spaces with natural light and provides dramatic views of downtown.

Inside, a large glass atrium contains a feature staircase to establish direct connections to each floor and the different functional areas of the building. The staircase provides a striking architectural statement set against a full-height wood feature wall designed as an artistic representation of a DNA barcode, offering visual warmth and conceptually expressing the building’s various scientific uses.

DIAMOND SCHMITT ARCHITECTS
September 18, 2017
TORONTO – Red River College in Winnipeg has awarded a $95-million Innovation Centre project to Diamond Schmitt Architects in joint venture with Number TEN Architectural Group. The 100,000-square-foot development will comprise new construction and incorporate a repurposed downtown heritage building to provide state-of-the-art facilities that will help create jobs, expand research, and foster innovation in the heart of Winnipeg’s Exchange District.

Diamond Schmitt and Number TEN were selected for their combined team experience designing flexible, collaborative educational space that can readily be adapted as learning methods evolve to keep pace with changes in the workplace. “We are excited to work with Red River College to design a facility that prepares students for their careers and enables both the college and the business community to work together,” said Ms. Sydney Browne, Principal, Diamond Schmitt Architects.

Among the features to advance student projects to marketplace development include a pitch session room and open teaching areas the College calls “collision” spaces that accommodate students working together alongside industry and social service partners.

The project received $40.6 million in funding from the federal government through its post-secondary institutions strategic investment fund (SIF), which stipulates a fast-track timeline for construction. “We are now in the design stage and we expect to be building within twelve months,” said Red River College President Paul Vogt. RRC is currently in the early stages of implementing a major fundraising campaign – the largest in the history of the College – to raise the additional $54.8 million to support the development of this project.

The project site is at Red River College’s Exchange District campus and will include the 100-year-old, three-storey Scott Fruit Building. An existing structure is being demolished for the new construction and building site preparations are underway.

“Red River College is a forward-thinking institution that recognizes the important role that innovation and industry partnerships play in creating the best opportunities for today’s workforce,” says Number TEN Partner Doug Hanna, who led the design for Red River College’s new Skilled Trades and Technology Centre, currently under construction. “Our team combines Diamond Schmitt’s industry-leading experience in the design of similar facilities across Canada with Number TEN’s reputation for design excellence in the Winnipeg market.”

RED RIVER COLLEGE’S NEW 100,000 SQ. FT. INNOVATION CENTRE BREAKS GROUND
Published: Wednesday, 18 July 2018 10:30
Shovels hit the ground Wednesday July 18 at Red River College’s Exchange District Campus, on the site of what will become the new Innovation Centre @ RRC. In front of a distinguished audience of dignitaries and project stakeholders, RRC executive director of Indigenous strategy Rebecca Chartrand blessed the site on behalf of campus elders.

The new Innovation Centre is designed to foster collaboration between students, faculty, industry and the community, leading to new ideas and partnerships that support the college’s goal of preparing students for the job market and moving local industry ahead of the curve. Designed by Number TEN Architectural Group and Diamond Schmitt Architects inc. in joint venture, the facility’s striking design features will capture the imagination of both building users and passersby.

“During the design process, we proposed that wonder, Imagination, empathy, mystery, being startled, and engaging in passionate search are the key experiences underpinning innovation,” said Number TEN partner-in-charge Doug Hanna in his address to the audience. “In our search for additional layers of meaning that complemented the project charter, it was our intention that the Innovation Centre @ Red River College inspire these qualities in students and faculty.”

The Innovation Centre’s project charter – a set of established and agreed upon project objectives – includes the following goals:
• Community connectivity, inclusion and collaboration
• Socially responsible programs and initiatives
• Agility and adaptability to enhance innovation
• Unique architectural design relevant to innovative learning and teaching
• Heritage adaptive re-use sensitive to the exchange district
• Leading edge sustainability

Among the project’s most ambitious goals is its net zero emissions energy target – a first for a project of this scale in Manitoba. A net zero building is one where the total energy consumed annually is approximately equal to the amount of renewable energy created on the site and returned to the grid.

62M is a 41-unit residential development located at the edge of downtown Winnipeg and the Red River. Compressed between a freeway and the backs of neighbouring properties, the site was considered undesirable due to restricted views and a lack of street frontage. Lifted up on 35’ high stilts, the project overcomes the limitations of its surroundings with an iconic form and unprecedented sightlines.

The two storey, circular building is both spatially efficient and cost-effective. As a whole, the 360° plan provides the widest possible perimeter for glass with the smallest amount of exterior envelope to construct. In addition, all 40 units have identical, pie-shaped layouts that simplify assembly. Each 610 s.f. suite is arranged so that the entry and utility spaces occupy the narrow end, closest to the circulation core. This configuration frees the remaining square footage for a flexible, open living area that culminates in an expansive wall of floor to ceiling glass.

At ground level, 20 supporting columns spaced between alternating pairs of parking stalls form a ring just inside the building’s perimeter. The columns’ thinness is a clear
counterpoint to the band of housing, emphasizing the weight and mass of the building
floating above.

The landscape design is conceived as a sea of greenery surrounding the building, leaving an open, cloister-like volume beneath the soffit. The garden is comprised of 62 Jack Pines set within a bed of mixed pinecones. Rows of ferns will be planted between the pines, and a series of pinecone-shaped planting beds will be found amidst the trees and around the central elevator and lobby core.

I used to work in that building when it was an "antique" store many years ago. The toilets would freeze over in the winter, and the owner would duck out the back on his bicycle if he thought a tax collector was coming.

Glad to see it being repurposed!

THE SPOT AT EAST VILLAGE 221 Stradbrook Avenue,

Quote:
The Spot at East Village is sure to leave a lasting first impression with an impressive 20 stories of solid concrete construction and stunningly unobstructed views of Downtown Winnipeg and over the Red River. Peacefully overlook the hustle and bustle going on down below, just steps away.

The inside is just as nice as the outside with stainless steel appliances, kitchen islands, insuite laundry and floor to ceiling windows. There are studio, 1 and 2 bedroom suite layouts all more impressive than the last. The experience starts right when you drive into your 5 level, enclosed parking structure, walk through the glass lobby with soaring ceiling heights, grab a drink at the onsite coffee and spirits shack and hop in the elevator. Once you open your door you’ll be greeted by tons of natural light pouring through the floor to ceiling glass windows. Nothing better than a great view on a sunny day!

Conveniently located at 221 Stradbrook, steps from the Southwest Rapid Transit Corridor you can travel far and wide in Winnipeg within minutes. Direct buses pass by frequently to downtown and the University of Manitoba. Prefer a more active lifestyle? Ride your bike right into downtown over the Donald Street bridge and enjoy your free secure bike storage available at The Spot.

The Spot at East Village is the 3rd ‘Spot’ branded building found in Winnipeg and is among good company. The Spot apartments are recognized for being modern, amenity rich rental communities which inspire Residents to live a well balanced lifestyle. With construction currently underway this project is scheduled for completion in 2020.
