Douglas Cardinal

Douglas Cardinal, 1989

Douglas Cardinal is a Canadian architect based in Ottawa, Canada. He is still practicing, and his firm was recently in touch about using a portrait.

Cardinal was born in Calgary, Alberta, of Métis, Blackfoot/Kainai, German and Algonquin heritage and is “famous for flowing architecture marked with smooth curvilinear forms and influenced by his Aboriginal heritage as well as European Expressionist architecture.” (Wikipedia)

In this photograph he stands with a rendering of the “New National Museum of Man” (1984), which was renamed the Canadian Museum of Civilization in 1986.
