WINNIPEG PROJECTS

MUSEUM FOR HUMAN RIGHTS

City: Winnipeg, MB.
Branch: Allmar Winnipeg

A national and international destination, The Canadian Museum for Human Rights opened to the public in 2014 and is the first federal museum devoted to the topic of human rights.

Designed by architect Antoine Predock, the Museum building integrates form with purpose. The striking landmark stands as a symbol of the ongoing struggle to achieving human rights for all. This visionary building is a unifying symbol of concepts such as inclusion, freedom, equality and dignity – ideas that have inspired Canadians to strive for human rights. Its spiralling design takes visitors on an upward journey, progressing from ground to sky, darkness to light – intended as a metaphor for the struggle toward fully realized human rights for all.

Inspired by Canada’s majestic natural domain – grasslands, deeply rooted trees, towering mountains, northern lights, snow, icebergs, water and sky – Antoine Predock’s masterful design is evocative of numerous natural elements. Predock has described the building as “carved into the earth and dissolving into the sky.”
