Arctic Adaptations (Exact Dates: Nunavut at 15 is Canada's selection for the 14th International Architecture Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia. The WAG is proud to be a venue on the exhibition's post-Venice tour. The unique climate, geography, and culture of the Canadian North offer the opportunity, indeed demands, that architects and planners rethink how buildings and infrastructures should operate. Faced with these challenges, architecture typically operates as a problem-solver, whereas Arctic Adaptations argues the possibility of architecture as an opportunity-seeker. In a landscape of extremes that oscillates between freeze and thaw, dark and light, accessible and inaccessible, Arctic Adaptations reflects on a difficult past, a challenging present, and envisions a future architecture that is adaptive, responsive, and rooted in Nunavut’s unique geography, climate, and culture. The exhibition will open at the WAG in spring 2015. Exact dates to be confirmed. Image credit: Map of Nunavut and its 25 Communities; Lateral Office, 2013; courtesy Lateral Office.
