Art Gallery of Nova Scotia

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Project Description

The new Gallery and Arts District, located on the Salter Block of the Halifax Waterfront, has been designed to be a transformative arts destination for all to experience.

The winning design for the new gallery includes a peaked hat shape at the entrance of the building, reminiscent of the headdress worn by Mi’kmaw women. As Halifax architect Omar Gandhi said the team wanted to design a building that tells a story about where it is from, “I think it’s much more deep and meaningful than just an extremely elaborate, beautiful building. This is a symbol of a city and a symbol of its people.”
