Building CMHR: A lump of clay becomes reality
from Winnipeg Free Press
While fundraisers and politicians got the applause for opening the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, the 8,200 workers who built it have their names written on plaques inside and the memory of their creation etched in their minds forever. "It was definitely one of those projects where we needed to live it to get it done," said construction manager Rob Duerksen. Architect Antoine Predock said he originally made a clay sculpture — instead of computer drawings or models — of his design, and the museum today looks exactly as he imagined.
