dc.descriptionAdministration building, general view of the entire west elevation, from the second floor of the museum, depicting undulating form of façade; Michel Languedoc, senior architect with the Montreal firm Tétreault, Parent, Languedoc et Associés, collaborated with Cardinal on the design of the Museum. Cardinal is of North American Indian descent. The grandest expression of his 'cultural shell' is the Canadian Museum of Civilization, Hull [Gatineau], Quebec; its rhythmic and richly textured, poured- and hammered-concrete exterior fabric contains diversely articulated exhibition spaces and provides a symbolic ensemble with the federal parliament buildings, which face it across the river [in Ottawa].
