kubik applied its extensive museum fabrication experience to produce the twelve galleries for the new Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR), located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The CMHR interior galleries are designed by Ralph Appelbaum Associates (RAA), with design assist by kubik. The CMHR museum’s grand opening commenced in September 2014.
The CMHR is envisioned as a national and international destination-a centre of learning where Canadians and people from around the world can engage in discussion and commit to taking action against hate and oppression. kubik worked closely with RAA to translate design intent into the technical details required for fabrication construction, delivery and installation. 47,000 square feet of exhibitry, artifact cases, theatre, scenic pieces, graphics and interactive work stations were produced, collectively, for the following galleries:
L1Z1 Buhler Hall
L2Z1 Introduction to Human Rights
L2Z2 Indigenous Peoples in Canada
L2Z3 Canada’s Human Rights Journey
L2M The Canadian Challenge
L3Z1 The Holocaust
L3Z2 Hard Work and Hope
L3Z3 Breaking the Silence
L3Z4 Peace and Human Rights
L4 Human Rights Today
L4M Eye on the World
L5 See Change Make Change
kubik‘s expertise in building world class museums, as well as our work on numerous other RAA projects, gave the team at CMHR confidence that the museum’s fit out would exceed their expectations, said Sam Kohn, President and CEO of kubik.
