Confederation Centre Art Gallery - Living lightly on the earth

Saturday, October 22 2016 to Sunday, April 30 2017

The exhibition explores the story of the Ark and its architectural vision of life led in collaboration with nature.

The Ark: an early exploration in weaving together the sun, wind, biology and architecture for the benefit of humanity.
- Ark dedication, September 1976

In 1974, the provincial and federal governments invited the Cape Cod-based New Alchemy Institute to construct a demonstration on Prince Edward Island of "a new commitment to living lightly on the earth." The resulting Ark for Prince Edward Island, designed in partnership with Solsearch Architects, was an innovative "bioshelter" offering a self-sufficient living environment for a family of four, providing for food and energy needs, managing wastes, and enabling a new and symbiotic relationship between its inhabitants and the ecosystem of their home.
