In 2002, The Winnipeg Architecture Foundation (WAF) began a research project undertaking research on, and oral history interviews with, Winnipeg architects that practiced in the modernist period of 1945 - 1975. The research has now been expanded to include engineers, landscape architects, interior designers and construction firms. The research and interviewing, which is ongoing, provides a very interesting, and unique, perspective on the design and growth of Winnipeg in the modernist years.
