A conversation with Architect Douglas Cardinal, Architect of The Future


Engineers Canada and the Canadian Urban Institute present a free webinar, “Douglas Cardinal: Architect of the Future”.

This is a rare opportunity to join into an intimate conversation with world renowned architect, Douglas Cardinal.

The event will open with a screening of the 30-minute documentary and move to a conversation led by interviewer Randy Herrmann, Director of the Engineering Access Program (ENGAP) at the University of Manitoba.

The film reveals how Mr. Cardinal’s Anishinaabe culture and Indigenous worldview fuel his creative genius. Written by his wife, Idoia and produced by Douglas Cardinal, the film features his friend, world-renowned artist, Alex Janvier and their pledge to change Canada’s colonialism through their art.
