Piqqusilirivvik Inuit Cultural Learning Facility

Clyde River, Canada

The global design firm Stantec works closely with indigenous communities. The Piqqusilirivvik Cultural Learning Center is a hub for the transmission of traditional Inuit knowledge to the community. It introduces students to ancient knowledge and expertise. Traditional architecture is reinterpreted in a contemporary language. The layout of the interior, the choice of materials and the design all echo Inuit values. The architectural design focuses on their unique way of life and the preservation of local culture. The state-of-the-art building has up-to-date tools and technologies. Parts of the facade were clad with concrete skin panels in a special green shade.
