Batoche National Historic Site a Finalist in the SEGD Global Design Awards

We are honoured to announce that the design for Batoche National Historic Site has been chosen as a finalist for this year’s SEGD Global Design Awards.  Since 1987, the SEGD Global Design Awards have honoured works that effectively communicate a sense of place while providing direction and meaningful experiences in public spaces.

The site of Batoche National Historic Site is deeply rooted in its history, a place where the Metis Nation and the Canadian Government were engaged in a land dispute due to their opposing methods of land allocation. The design weaves together many elements of the community of Batoche that once existed at the site with modern architectural forms to highlight the now thriving Metis culture.

This project represents the work of our interpretive planning and design (formerly Form:Media), and architecture and landscape architecture (Ekistics Plan & Design) teams.

Since 1987, the SEGD Global Design Awards have set the standard for excellence in the field of experiential graphic design, honouring designs that connect people to public spaces. Awards are conferred by an international multi-disciplinary panel of jurors.
