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 M√©tis, 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.
