Sacred House of Kangiqsualujjuaq

From October 18–22, 2019, the Habitats and Cultures studio from the Master’s program of the Université Laval School of Architecture, travelled to Nunavik to collaborate with Kangiqsualujjuamiuq to imagine a sacred house on the Land.

The workshop aims to develop culturally and territorially appropriate projects for Nunavik Inuit communities. Kangiqsualujjuamiuq have highlighted the need for a “Sacred House” or a shelter on the Land, a “Place for the transmission of Inuit culture... and more” particularly for local youth and elders.
