Winnipeg wows architects

  • Print

As a former Winnipegger, it was very exciting for me to attend the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada's festival in Winnipeg ("Winnipeg: City of architectural delights," May 26).

It's very clear that in recent years Winnipeg has rediscovered and embraced its tradition of achievement in architecture and design, and has focused this energy wisely into transformative projects in many parts of the city.

While the festival was mainly a national event for the professional community, the imagination and creativity that defined the public events came from Winnipeg architects. Playing golf in downtown alleys at midnight with tennis balls was a truly "only in Winnipeg" moment, and the closing party, Table for 1200, showed the city at its best -- fun, unpretentious, smart and sexy.

The RAIC will be looking closely at the week's events as we think about defining future events across the country. One thing is clear to us: Winnipeg's influence will be felt.
