March Event | Johanna Hurme of 5468796

Join us for a talk by Johanna Hurme of Winnipeg’s 5468796!
Johanna Hurme is an architect and a founding partner of Winnipeg based 5468796 Architecture. Johanna came to Canada from Finland during the mid 90’s, graduated with a Masters of Architecture degree from the University of Manitoba and worked for several years in Winnipeg prior to establishing 5468796 Architecture with Sasa Radulovic in 2007. Working around a single table the twelve members of 5468796 believe that every client, user and civic environment – regardless of budget – deserves an outcome that advances architecture.

In the past seven years the firm has achieved national and international recognition and its work has been published in over 100 books and publications. The Houston based Rice Design Alliance recently stated that they ‘truly believe 5468796 to be one of the most talented young design firms worldwide.’

5468796 makes design advocacy an ongoing pursuit through critical practice, professorships at the Universities of Manitoba, Toronto and Montreal; and through numerous public engagements.  In 2012 5468796 represented Canada at the Venice Biennale in Architecture and in 2013 they were selected as recipient of the 2013 Prix de Rome Award in Architecture for Canada by the Canada Council for the Arts. Johanna currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce, on the Council of the Manitoba Association of Architects and is the President of the RAW Gallery Board of Directors. In 2010 she received a Manitoba Woman Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Emerging Business.
