The Trend House exhibition (curated by Alena Rieger with assistance from Gordon Katelnikoff) will showcase archival material on the Canadian Trend Houses including the Winnipeg home designed by Walter Katelnikoff of Smith, Carter, Katelnikoff (now Architecture49). The houses were designed as part of an initiative by Western Woods in order to increase the market for their wood products. Western Woods began the Trend House program to showcase their products in contemporary, newly built, and affordable homes which were open to the public for viewing in the spring and summer of 1954.
