SEARCH IN BRIEF

 
5 firms shortlisted for Saskatchewan art gallery

The Saskatchewan city council is seeking proposals from five firms to design a new $58 million art gallery to house the art collection of Fred Mendel, an art patron and meatpacking plant owner who founded the Mendel Art Gallery in 1964 and died in 1967.

The five firms, culled from a list of 15 teams, vying for the job are: Portland-based Allied Works led by Brad Cloepfil; Calgary-based Gibbs Gage Architects with Los Angeles-based Frederick Fisher Architects; Toronto-based KPMB with Winnipeg-based Smith Carter; Number Ten Architectural Group also of Winnipeg with Saskatoon’s Klypac Rusick; Toronto-based Diamond and Schmitt; and Toronto-based Teeple Architects with Saskatoon-based P3 Architecture.

The preliminary plan calls for a 1,800-square-foot gallery to house the Mendel collection with a 250-square-foot-foyer that will display murals pained by Saskatoon painter William Perehudoff.

A team will be selected at the end of June.
