Wanuskewin Heritage Park

Wanuskewin Heritage Park + Meewasin Valley Authority + City of Saskatoon
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

aodbt is proud to have designed the original Wanuskewin Heritage Park which opened in 1992 and has remained a renowned example of prairie architecture inspired by First Nations Culture. The Heritage Centre provides the region with a world class facility for learning about, and enjoying a culture intrinsically tied to its natural surroundings while in a structure that reflects the spirit of all five Saskatchewan First Nations and is sensitively integrated in to the natural context. The original design process included numerous sessions held with elders representing Five First Nations to gain an understanding of what elements are reflective of traditional culture. aodbt has worked closely and  continuously with Wanuskewin Heritage Park in the development of a Visitor Experience Master Plan in 2013 and the fundraising campaign in 2015 for future expansion of the Heritage Park.
