Brett MacIntyre announced as Architecture for Emerging Practitioners prize winner

Brett MacIntyre has been named as the 2013 winner of the Canada Council for the Arts’ Prix de Rome in Architecture for Emerging Practitioners. MacIntyre will carry out a project entitled: 'Lessons from Lappland: Exploring the Indigenous Architecture of the Sami' and study the approaches taken by different countries towards the fostering of aboriginal cultures through architecture as part of the prize.

The €25,000 ($34,000) prize in Architecture for Emerging Practitioners is awarded to a recent graduate of one of Canada’s eleven accredited schools of architecture who demonstrates outstanding potential. MacIntyre, who previously won the Dalhousie University Faculty of Architecture Thesis prize in 2012, will have the opportunity to visit sites abroad, including the Arctic region of Sapmi, and also to intern at Richard Kroeker Design.

“Architecture offers a way to chronicle the evolution of a people and help keep its culture alive,” said Canada Council Director and CEO, Robert Sirman. “The creativity and dedication that Brett MacIntyre brings to this forward-thinking research topic, along with his commitment to making his findings accessible to the public, set a great example for new generations of creators.”
