The words of Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier will be featured on the colourful glass facade of the Waterloo Region History Museum, located just off of Homer Watson Boulevard in Kitchener. There are 16 colours of glass which have been turned into a hexadecimal computer code, allowing a various pattern of glass panels to represent the 26 letters of the alphabet. You won’t be able to stand back and read Laurier’s words, as they will be presented in the layout of the colourful glass panels.

Laurier’s words reflect the themes of several exhibits to be featured at the new museum:

“We do not want, that any individuals should forget the land of the origin or their ancestors. Let them look to the past, but let them also look to the future; let them look to the land of their ancestors, but let them look also to the land of their children.”

Construction of the museum is scheduled to be completed in 2010, and exhibits will be opened in 2011.
