Ryan Gorrie Brings his Perspective to CUI’s Series, “Cities in Time of COVID-19”

Senior Associate Ryan Gorrie brought his experience as a Winnipeg-based, Indigenous architect to a panel discussion conducted by the Canadian Urban Institute, titled “Cities in the time of COVID-19: What is the Role of Architecture in the Urban Recovery?” Along with fellow panelists Shirley Blumberg, Sam Oboh, and Daniel Pearl, the discussion – moderated by CUI host Mary W. Rowe – covered the impact that the pandemic has had on architecture and the architectural process, and areas where distancing and technology have created opportunities. Ryan spoke to the role of pandemics historically as a tool of colonization, and raised concern for continued and meaningful engagement with Indigenous communities – and the current momentum to advocate for inclusive environments.
