Amazing how far the white man goes to award sophistication and artistic heritage to even those who never had any, since they never made it out of the early Paleolithic lifestyle: Inuits, Eskimos, American Indians, Congolese, Aborigines... etc. But that is good, however. Let everybody think they were something so that now they behave civil and productively.
I don't know why I bother to respond to you, but perhaps it's because no one else has responded yet.

Tallmark, or whatever your name is, you're an idiot. A complete idiot. And what art have you made, you disgusting sack of shit?

Moderators, please take this immature douche's posting rights away. Preferably sooner rather than later. Oh and also feel free to delete his post, and this one as well.

Thanks and he is banned. WpG_GuY should have reported it as soon as he read it rather than wait til people like you finally notified us. Remember we are busy with our life like everyone else and can't read every single thread in this forum.

Is this building taking cues from the Nunavut landscape: a rock face or perhaps an iceberg?

Yes that's exactly it. The architectural team traveled to several Nunavut communities and were inspired by the landscape in the design which has the appearance of an iceberg.

DOORS SET TO OPEN IN ONE YEAR
Oct 8, 2019
“Everything has to be perfect,” Rick Chopp, the Inuit Art Centre project manager is describing the upcoming glass installation for the visible vault. The vault will be encased in two-storeys of glass, with glass shelving inside to display the Inuit carving collection. “There is little room for error when working with glass”, Rick adds.

With the Inuit Art Centre in its final year of construction and expected opening in Fall 2020, progress is happening everywhere: The floors on all four levels of the centre have been poured. The mezzanine steel is anchored to support the Mezzanine bridge that will offer a unique vantage point for viewing objects within the Visible Vault. The steel beams that support the curved outer frame of the gallery are complete and will eventually support the welcoming 5,000-square-foot glass atrium on the street level inviting the community in to experience the centre.

The Gallery Shop is being framed with a network of beams and columns as part of the renovation that will see the much-loved retail experience grow to meet the needs of the visitors. The expanded shop will feature street-facing windows that will provide another connection between the public and art.

The hard-working crew of about 65 will soon grow to 100 as the carpenters, plumbers, electricians begin work to create the inner workings and details to support the multi-dimensional centre.

“We’re anticipating the imminent arrival of the curtain wall framing that will wrap around the main floor, making the three-storey vault visible from the street,” Rick states. “And we expect to have the glass and main front entrance doors installed by mid-December.”

The fourth floor of the existing WAG building is being transformed into the new education and studio spaces by our construction crews. As the Inuit Art Centre will connect to the existing WAG building, the extensive renovation and redevelopment of the WAG continues. “We’ve already cut in three of the links between the addition and the existing WAG on the basement, main and fourth floors, and within a month or so we’ll start on the third floor gallery level with the mechanical, electrical and interior framing.”

“It’s an extraordinarily complicated structural steel building with the twisting angles and circles.” Rick notes regarding Michael Maltzan’s innovative design coming to life. Maltzan’s design is creating a progressive, transformative architectural space to engage the community. The curved line of the building comes with its construction challenges, but when complete will be a welcome and sweeping change to Winnipeg’s downtown. “It’s completely unique.”
