Kearns Mancini and Heneghan Peng selected as Architects of the Canadian Canoe Museum
We are proud to announce that Kearns Mancini Architects, with Heneghan Peng Architects, have been selected to design the Canadian Canoe Museum! In the museum's press-release, Lisa Rochon, Chair of the Canadian Canoe Museum Selection Committee, commented:
Ultimately, the jury awarded the heneghan peng/Kearns Mancini scheme for exemplifying the lightness and sublime functionality of the canoe. The museum design breaks with ego-driven architecture to offer a gentle, organic space that poetically winds its way along the Trent-Severn. No matter where you are inside the museum or outside standing on its roof, you will always be able to see the water, and a canoe waiting to be paddled by you. I can’t wait to see this museum built. It’s going to change the way we think about architecture, place making and the canoe - a true icon of design.
