Douglas Cardinal

Douglas Cardinal, 1989

A request came in from an organization whose building was designed by the esteemed Canadian architect Douglas Cardinal. Born in 1934, Cardinal is perhaps best known for his designs of the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Quebec (1989) and the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. (1998). He is considered one of Canada’s most influential contemporary Indigenous architects. Learn more about him on his website.

Cardinal was photographed by Karsh in 1989 and we have added some portraits of him. See more.
