Marieke Gruwel Book Launch

Friday Mar 15 2024 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium, Streaming on YouTube
NOTE: This event has already taken place. Please visit this page to see our upcoming events.

Join Marieke Gruwel for the launch of Manitoba Women in Design, presented by the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation (WAF).

The launch will be hosted live in the Atrium of McNally Robinson Booksellers, Grant Park and also available as a simultaneous YouTube stream.

Manitoba Women in Design tells the story of women’s contributions to Manitoba’s built environment during the twentieth century. These women worked as architects, interior designers, landscape architects, planners, and engineers. Their legacies can be traced across the province.

Despite this, many of these women and their contributions have been erased from architecture and design histories. This highly illustrative book begins the process of addressing these exclusions by showcasing the lives and careers of some of these notable women.

She has a BA (Hons) in Art History from the University of Winnipeg and a MA in Art History from Concordia University. Gruwel has worked with the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation (WAF) since 2015.
