A rockstar in the world of architecture has returned home to southern Alberta. Douglas Cardinal was born in Calgary and grew up in Red Deer, the eldest of eight kids with Siksika and Metis heritage. He's known for his curvelinear designs, from the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Quebec, to the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington D.C. That's in addition to his many designs right here in Alberta: like St. Mary's Church in Red Deer, Edmonton's Space and Science Centre, city halls in Spruce Grove and St. Albert and over a dozen schools. Today Douglas Cardinal was at the University of Calgary, hoping to insipre the next generation of indigenous architects. He spoke with host Doug Dirks.
