« Canadian Canoe Museum design competition shortlist announced
The Canadian Canoe Museum is taking another step towards relocating to the Parks Canada Peterborough Lift Lock National Historic Site on the Trent-Severn Waterway as a way to boost tourist attendance and revenue for both organizations. The Canadian Canoe Museum is taking the next step in its strategic plan to expand its profile and reach into a national scope which is consistent with the Museum’s focus on the stories, cultures and history that is about how we got here and who we are as Canadians.
On March 2, 2015, the Canadian Canoe Museum announced the Stage 1 Request for Qualifications (“RFQ”). The Stage 1 Request for Qualifications was open to all architects worldwide who had an interest in providing design services to the Canadian Canoe Museum at the Lift Lock and requested that each proponent submit a summary of their qualifications for such a project along with relevant background information such as references, size of the firm, previous projects, etc. The RFQ was announced to the media, posted on The Canadian Canoe Museum website and on Bustler.net. The Stage 1 RFQ closed on March 30th.
