Ouri Scott at the Venice Architecture Biennale

We are proud to announce that our very own Ouri Scott is currently at the Venice Architecture Biennale—"the Olympics for Architects" as she elegantly puts it—representing Canada with work she completed as part of the UNCEDED: Voices of the Land team! She uses the exhibition to explore what it means to be an Indigenous designer. Her interview with CBC news outlines the goals of the project:

"That message is that we come from the land, that we've been here since time immemorial and that the land and a relationship with the land is really important to us in the work that we do as architects, as designers."

The work is on display in Venice until late November.  Congratulations Ouri!
