Design Unveiled for Waterloo History Museum In Kitchener, Canada
Toronto based architect Moriyama + Teshima Architects in association with the Walter Fedy Partnership of Kitchener have unveiled the design of the new Waterloo History Museum to be built in the Waterloo Region of Ontario Canada. The design takes its cue from the museum’s location at an important historical crossroads, the site of two transportation routes that were critical to the development of Canada and the Waterloo Region. Fragments of both these routes intersect on the site serving as a powerful metaphor for the museum where the past, present and future intersect. The new museum will house 20,000 square feet of temporary and permanent exhibition space, classrooms, a theatre and educational facilities.
