Who is Étienne Gaboury?
Gaboury, a distant relative of Louis Riel, studied architecture and Latin at the University of Manitoba before studying at the Ecole Des Beaux Arts in Paris. Gaboury is known for his regional prairie designs which incorporate elements of the physical, emotional and spiritual.
His most notable projects include the Royal Canadian Mint building in Winnipeg, the new Saint Boniface Cathedral and the Esplanade Riel. The teepee-style Precious Blood Church completed in 1968 in St. Boniface, Manitoba, features eleven interior wood beams which form a smoke hole like skylight thirty meters above the altar.
