Congratulations to Winnipeg-based firm 5468796 Architecture Inc. and Jae-Sung Chon, whose Migrating Landscapes entry was selected to represent Canada at the Venice Biennale in Architecture, one of the single most important and prestigious international events in contemporary architecture. The winning entry was inspired by the individual experiences of the Migrating Landscapes Organizer (MLO), consisting of Johanna Hurme (5468796, born in Finland), Sasa Radulovic (5468796, born in the former Yugoslavia) and Jae-Sung Chon (University of Manitoba Faculty of Architecture, born in South Korea) who are first generation immigrants. Like many migrant Canadians, they all had unsettling encounters with the Canadian landscape and built environment as they settled into their new homes and lifestyles.

A national competition is set to launch in July to fill the 30-40 spaces in the "Migrating Landscapes" Canadian pavilion. Designers will be required to submit a model and personal story which explains how they have married their cultural memories with contemporary architecture." As fabricators need to create these individual modules from each model, we will be relying on the 3D capabilities of Vectorworks software during this process," explains Johanna Hurme, one of the principals.

We look forward to seeing the results of this project. You can follow the exciting development of the Migrating Landscapes on Facebook or Twitter.
