The City of Iqaluit needed a new cemetery. On this project, we consulted many groups in the community, including elders, religious leaders, and Council. We then prepared an analysis of cemetery needs and site considerations and prepared design options. All options provide spaces for gathering, healing and grieving, in addition to honouring those placed within the cemetery. The preferred design, based on community input, respects Inuit culture and traditions, and blends the plan with the tundra environment.
