Intended to symbolize ice, clouds and stone in a field of soft green grass, this landmark museum is set to illuminate the skyline of Winnipeg. Created to increase the understanding and awareness of the subject of human rights, this spectacular destination is anchored by a 350-seat auditorium, galleries, restaurants and administrative offices. Its avant-garde design embraces Tyndall limestone making it a visual and architectural marvel.
