canadian museum for human rights

March 6, 2016

One of the most brilliant and beautiful structures lies in the heart Winnipeg. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights sits on historic land at The Forks, the intersection of the Red and Assiniboine River. The outside structure resembles a wrapped up bundle (nest like I’d say) that spirals upward to a point. It’s rounded, yet angular, with reflective glass panels mixed with limestone. The inside is simply amazing! Breathtaking really! The views of the city, the spacial interaction between rooms, the alabaster stone lit walk ways, the natural elements of stone with steel, water and air. I actually spent my whole first visit just experiencing the architectural space alone. I have yet to go back and engage with the exhibit. canadian museum for human rights canadian museum for human rights

Architect Antoine Predock showcases his ability to create structural landscapes that synthesize the varied independent spaces and how they unpredictably yet organically flow together. The space was interactive, emotionally evocative, innovative, and thoughtfully designed!
