In the same way that CBC reflects Canada and its diversity of voices to Canadians and to the world, the architects and designers contributing to Migrating Landscapes are participating in our national conversation about our shared landscape as they translate cultural memory into architecture.”
Very few of us are still living in the same place we grew up and can relate to the feeling of settling in to a new space. Migrating Landscapes delves into stories of migration and immigration and how they affect architecture and design. This project will represent Canada at the Venice Biennale of Architecture, “Olympics of Architecture”.

This project hits us because it targets young architects. We must get behind the leaders of the next generation. It’s timely to explore the Canadian identity in the global economy, giving a good snapshot of Canadian architects to appropriate for the Venice Biennale. It takes a heck of a lot of work and dedication to be an architect.”
