CIBC Legacy Space Featured in Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail featured the CIBC Legacy Space in an article about the increased involvement of Indigenous architects in projects across Canada. Legacy Spaces are rooms embedded within organizations and institutions that are intended to promote reconciliation. They are designed and curated with input from the Downie-Wenjack Fund and Indigenous Peoples within and affiliated with the organization. The CIBC Legacy Space uses digitally fabricated wood slats to reference Anishinaabe teaching lodges and the longhouses of Huron-Wendat and Haudenosaunee villages, and also brings references to alliances and the Toronto Purchase.
