Unceded: Voices of the Land

The Pendennis Hotel Development is thrilled to be the host venue for Unceded: Voices of the Land, created by Alberta-born Indigenous architect, Douglas Cardinal.

This is the first project to be hosted inside the historic Pendennis Building, built in the early 1900s on Jasper Avenue. The building, now Metis-owned, has been restored as close to the original architecture of its past. 

The Pendennis Building bridges the worlds of old and new architecture so it is only fitting that its first public event is a celebration of Indigenous architecture presented through a breathtaking multi-media installation.  We hope you’ll join us!


Opens: Fall 2022

Location: Pendennis Hotel Building, 9666 Jasper Ave, Edmonton

ABOUT UNCEDED – Voices of the Land is a breathtaking multimedia installation that brings together the past, present, and future of the Indigenous experience, as seen through the eyes and minds of 18 distinguished Indigenous architects and designers from across Turtle Island (North America).

Led by world-renowned Canadian architect, Douglas Cardinal, and co-curated by Gerald McMaster and David Fortin, UNCEDED speaks to the contribution of Indigenous architects in shaping our world with their vision, creativity, and technical skills — but above all through their connection to the land and traditional ways of knowing. The installation features the work of architects and designers as they tell their stories of Indigeneity, resilience, sovereignty, and colonization. 

The exhibit debuted in Venice in 2018 at the Venice Architecture Biennale and was most recently concluded at the Canadian Museum of History in February 2021. The Unceded: Voices of the Land exhibit is set to open in at the Pendennis Building in Edmonton, September 2022.
