Douglas Cardinal

(b. Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, 7 March 1934)

"Douglas Cardinal's aim has been to give architectural expression to a synthesis of the indigenous cultures of the Indians of North America with that of the dominating Euro-American culturre. Although his ancestry is largely Indian, he has had to take deliberate steps in his adulthood to learn and absorb Indian lore and philosophy, an effort that, coming after his study of architecture, inexorably influenced his philosophy of architecture as profoundly as it influenced his philosophy of life."

— Abraham Rogatnick, in Muriel Emmanuel, Contemporary Architects, p139-140.
