Queen's Influence On Winnipeg Architecture

Queen & Architecture

WINNIPEG - An exhibit is examining the affect Queen Elizabeth had on architecture in Winnipeg.

The exhibit which is called “Queen Elizabeth The Second and Winnipeg: A Modern Elizabethan Era” looks at the monarch's seven decades of influence on local design, as well as the evolution of Canadian architecture.

Exhibit creator Daniel Guenther says the city has strong links to international design movements but architecture here also reflects local talents and material, creating a uniquely modern Elizabethan Era.

The exhibit, produced by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation and Canadian Heritage, is on display at Union Station until Sunday.
