A passion for inspiring budding architects

Two highly experienced experts in architecture came to facilitate the week-long workshop, held at the Tsuu T’ina high school. Wanda Dalla Costa, an architect as well as a member of the Saddle Lake First Nation in northern Alberta, has over 20 years of experience working with aboriginal groups and came in to facilitate the workshop from her indigenous architecture firm based in Los Angeles. Her former professor and mentor, Graham Livesey is a professor at the Master of Architecture Program at the University of Calgary (U of C). Both have a passion for inspiring students interested in design in any discipline.

“I specialized in indigenous architecture, and being in the profession, there are very few native architects in Canada,” says Dalla Costa.
