The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is a symbolic apparition of ice, clouds and stone in a field of prairie grass. Carved into the earth and dissolving into the city skyline, the abstract ephemeral wings of a dove embrace a mythic stone mountain of 450 million year old Tyndall limestone. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is the creation of a unifying and timeless landmark for all nations and cultures of the world.


The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is compelling and unique. With a masterful play of light, it creates a journey through the building that is particularly powerful. The CMHR creates a significant impact onto the Winnipeg skyline.
