An Evening with Douglas Cardinal
REDx Talks, a branch of iiniistsi Treaty Arts Society, and d.talks are co-presenting an evening with the renowned Canadian architect, Douglas Cardinal.
Douglas Cardinal is an architect, planner, activist, philosopher, artist and Anishinaabe Elder. Born in 1934 in Calgary, his organic style of architecture is a result of a keen awareness and connection to nature. His buildings and planned communities have been recognized as early leaders in sustainability and ecological design. A forerunner of philosophies of sustainability, green building, and ecologically designed community planning, the architecture created by Douglas Cardinal springs from his keen observation of Nature, and an understanding that everything works seamlessly together. In 2018, Douglas Cardinal was a co-curator for UNCEDED at the Canadian Pavilion of the Venice Architecture Biennale.
With a combined program that celebrates Douglas Cardinal’s Indigenous ancestry, Mr. Cardinal’s keynote presentation will be followed by a REDx Intertribal by local aboriginal chef Shane Chartrand; and to close the evening, a discussion in the oral tradition.
