Canadian Museum of Immigration
The Canadian Museum of Immigration is a new federally funded museum project in Halifax, Nova Scotia that is expanding to include the Canadian Immigration Story. It is situated in a nationally recognized historical building managed by the Halifax Port Authority.
Working closely with the museum staff, the design for a new event hall responds to their needs for a world-class venue to host a range of events including the CBC Halifax concert series, international political events, special events, and wedding ceremonies. The space will also include a commercial kitchen and a performance theatrical stage.
Adjacent to the event spaces are two museum spaces; one dedicated to Pier 21, while the other is intended for the new Canadian Immigration Story. Both spaces are being upgraded and enhanced with top-of-the-line mechanical and electrical features. The museum spaces themselves are highly technical as a humidity-proof seal within the historical building is required to protect the exhibits. In collaboration with David J. Agro, Architect.
