Get A First Glimpse At The Weengushk Film Institute Through The 17th International Architecture Biennale

Designed by Italian architect Stefano Pujatti of Elastico Farm, designs a project that celebrates the rich aboriginal culture of the place


Italian architect Stefano Pujatti, principal at Elastico Farm – architecture studio with offices in Italy and Canada and at least three nominations for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture - Mies van der Rohe Award to its credit –, has recently been commissioned to design a new building in Canada. He partnered with Toronto-based KFA Architects and Planners, a team he had already collaborated with for the design of the Maison Glacé, an experiment that seeks to connect the building to the environment in the face of Toronto’s harsh winter climate.


Elastico Farm and KFA Architects and Planners have been asked to design the new home for the Weengushk Film Institute, a non-profit, artist- focused film and television-training centre, dedicated to unlocking the creative potential of Indigenous youth, on Manitoulin Island on Lake Huron, Canada. It’s a project that celebrates the rich aboriginal culture of the place, its traditions and myths, as well as its magnificent natural setting.



The project is presented in world premiere at the 17th International Architecture Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, that opened on Saturday 22 May, 2021, as part of the Italian Pavilion curated by Alessandro Melis and dedicated to “Resilient Communities."
