“The Arts District will be a welcoming and inclusive public gathering place on the Halifax Waterfront that showcases the best in contemporary art and public programs. Developed with Nova Scotians for Nova Scotians, the Arts District will increase opportunities for all to access and experience art, celebrate our diverse and unique stories through the arts, and enhance the overall waterfront experience.”

– Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Vision Statement

In response to a public Request for Proposal, our team was engaged by KPMB Architects — alongside Omar Gandhi Architect, Jordan Bennet Studio, Elder Lorraine Whitman (NWAC), PUBLIC WORK and Transsolar — to create a visualization package that conveyed the team’s vision for the future of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. 

#normandthegang was challenged to create visual imagery that communicated the overall design vision while capturing the culture and energy of the city of Halifax. 

[#normandthegang] captured the essence and identity of our design and landscape concept for the new Art Gallery of Nova Scotia beautifully. The images are captivating, compelling and is deeply integrated into the narrative and Mi’kmaq design thinking developed by our interdisciplinary team.
