Two Row Architect

In Progress – anticipated occupancy April 2019 

Shingwauk Kinoomaage Gamig will house classrooms and administrative offices in addition to a student lounge, café, art gallery and performing arts space. Libraries and archives will be located in the heart of the structures which will also include a National Chiefs Library. “The roof above the library and resource room is crafted from spruce. That dome is modelled after the teaching lodge which stood in our communities for thousands of years. 
 

“It’s really about fulfilling [Chief] Shingwauk’s vision in terms of taking the next step in expanding the scope of the Anishinaabemowin program, the language program, [and] bringing online very shortly the Anishinaabe Studies program, and then creating an academic institution here that has a really symbiotic and reciprocal relationship with the communities. That’s the goal and the vision.” Mitch Case, Director of Student Services, Outreach and Resources
