What are the building blocks of a city? peg³ is an art project in which local architecture meets a classic children’s toy.
peg³ is a playful tribute to Winnipeg’s built heritage, and also a celebration of the small businesses & organizations that thrive within.
Each set features laser-engraved representations of Winnipeg landmarks on locally-made maplewood blocks. They are designed by Winnipeg artists, and manufactured locally using eco-friendly biodegradable materials.
There are currently 5 blocks in the series:
• Bate Building, Burton Cummings/Walker Theatre, Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Fortune Block, and Public Safety Building.
The CMHR blocks are available for purchase at the CMHR Boutique ($10). If you are interested in the other blocks or a full set, they are available by request (contact Brian using the form at the bottom of this page).
our roles: concept, design, implementation
Partners: local artists
Side-Project Saturdays is Winnipeg’s favourite (and only) pop-up coworking meetup, for anyone working on anything. Come work on your project or hobby, enjoy free coffee & WIFI, and get stuff done alongside other people!
Coworking Winnipeg promotes the coworking, makerspace, and collaborative communities of Winnipeg. The site aims to help people discover & connect to our city’s thriving creative, entrepreneurial, freelance, and innovative communities.
We get a kick out of applying our skills to help local small businesses stand out online, so they can focus on the things that they do best. Here are some of our recent favourites.
