Designing for diversity and inclusion is an architectural practice that centers on engagement and community. Learn from Canadian Wellness Architects how they incorporated Indigenous practices and symbolism to create an institutional space that welcomes, respects and focuses on the Indigenous community’s heritage and culture. Yellowhead Institute is an Indigenous-led research and education centre based at Toronto Metropolitan University. The Institute privileges Indigenous philosophy and amplifies Indigenous voices. Rooted in community networks, Yellowhead offers critical and accessible resources to support the reclamation of Indigenous land and life. Red Studio presents the process and outcomes of the project focusing on narrative, symbolism, material, and programming.
