  • ORIGINAL BUILDING
Funded by the federal Department of Indian Affairs, the project involved renovation of a 1950's school into an interpretive museum for the Six Nations Band Council. The building aesthetic took its vision from the rythum of native music. The biggest technical challenge was to upgrade the existing building envelope to current museum standards which restrict temperature variations to 2° F and relative humidity to a 2% change over 24 hours, regardless of outside weather changes.
