LAL Inaugural Lecture Series: Visions in Canadian Design
Members of the Sudbury community were invited to take part in the Laurentian University School of Architecture's grand opening lecture series, "Visions in Canadian Design Inaugural Lecture Series". The series was launched in conjunction with the official opening of Canada's newest school of architecture, on September 4th, 2013.
The series opened on the evening of Wednesday, September 4th with a free public lecture by one of Canada's most celebrated architects, Douglas Cardinal.
An Officer of the Order of Canada, Cardinal is the architect of the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the National Museum of the American Indian, among other landmark buildings. Of Blackfoot and Métis heritage, Cardinal is known for his flowing masonry curves and his strong identification with the natural environment.
