The Telus World of Science was originally designed by Canadian architect Douglas Cardinal. But its expansions weren’t. How should we treat iconic buildings as the years go on? Especially when the creator is still alive and kicking? We’ve got the story of the many, many times Douglas Cardinal’s buildings have been changed over the years, and how he feels about it.
In this episode, we spoke to Douglas Cardinal, Edmonton-based architect and Cafe Mosaics co-owner Khuyen Des, and Telus World of Science President & CEO Alan Nursall.

This week on All That Matters, we asked Edmontonians for their elevator pitches! We’ve got deliciously impractical ideas about bobsledding and pirates from Rapid Fire Theatre’s Chris Borg and Sam Stralak. We ride in the actual elevator at Enterprise Square to hear artist Julie Ferguson’s idea for the building. And we ask folks on the street about their ideas for the old Royal Alberta Museum building.

This week: Half Off. Why is attendance at the Art Gallery of Alberta only half of what it was when the new building opened, and what can they do about it? We speak with Edmonton City Councillor Andrew Knack why he voted against funding an experiment with free admission at the gallery. And we’ll talk to Latitude 53’s Todd Janes and Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History’s Nina Simon about what other galleries are trying to get crowds in the door.
