A collaboration with Ken Borton, as part of the sixth edition of the Winnipeg Design Festival, a ‘snapshot’ exhibit of the growing body of work by Winnipeg’s architecture and design community and their take on ‘Housing’ in a Manitoba context.
The 2016 Design Festival theme titled Cha[lle]nge, invited festival programmers to reflect on and question how design is working to change and challenge our expectations of the built-world around us; be-it via fashion, graphic communication, making, or architecture. To Cha[lle]nge within design is to consider how our environment serves us, what we require in order to better serve our communities, and how design can impact and interact with both of those needs.
These twelve projects help capture the design and architecture zeitgeist within our province’s small, tight-knit, and passionate community of practitioners and designers. These housing projects range from the recreational abodes of lake-country MB, all the way up to multi-tenant condominium projects within Winnpeg’s city centre.
