Johanna and the rest of the Migrating Landscapes team just sent over their photos from the rest of their time in Venice. What a fantastic experience!
Dear team, friends, family, partners + supporters,
I was hoping to get this last update out much sooner, but the mayhem surrounding the opening days and returning straight to some big deadlines in Canada have delayed things. We have an incredible roster of people to thank for enabling our whole team to enjoy this past week. It has been the adventure of a lifetime - one that I will surely remember for the rest of my career as one of the most exhilarating and inspiring experiences.
We have thoroughly enjoyed sharing this event with many of you in person and with the rest of you from a distance, and we consider ourselves very lucky to do, and to promote, what we love - architecture.
We've met so many incredibly talented and exceptional people through the course of this project and we are forever thankful for the opportunity to represent Canada.
Jordy, Rasa, Sasa and Jae, and a number of very generous Team Canada members - you know who you are - ended up working hard on Friday while us girls got a day off. THANK YOU!
I'll end with a quote from our catalogue: '...after 31 weeks of architecture exhibitions in seven Canadian cities, eight venues, over 250 sponsors and supporters, 300 individuals and 120 entries submitted to the competition, 37 highly regarded jurors, hundreds of volunteers and thousands of volunteer hours, over 7,500 cubic feet of wood, over 120 (and counting) publications and media pieces in newspapers, magazines, radio, television and on the web. Migrating Landscapes is changing the landscape of architectural culture in Canada. Venice is one stop along the way.'
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help and support!
Johanna & Sasa
