Manitoba Women in Design exhibit

20 June 2024–31 August 2024

Millennium Library, 251 Donald Street


The Manitoba Women in Design exhibit is a complement to a new publication from the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation. Copies are available for loan from library branches.
Authored by Marieke Gruwel and designed by Burdocks Design, the book tells the story of women’s contributions to Manitoba’s built environment during the twentieth century. These women worked as architects, interior designers, landscape architects, planners, and engineers. Their legacies can be traced across the province.

Despite this, many of these women and their contributions have been erased from architecture and design histories. This highly illustrative book begins the process of addressing these exclusions by showcasing the lives and careers of some of these notable women.

Please visit the exhibit to learn more about some of these women.

Presented in partnership with the Winnipeg Public Library, with support from the City of Winnipeg Gail Hammerquist Fund.
