WINNIPEG – A new time lapse video offers a relatively seamless look at more than three years of construction of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. 

The video, edited from the museum’s construction camera, was released on YouTube to celebrate the museum winning the Global Best Cultural Project award from Engineering News-Record. The award was presented to PCL Construction at a gala dinner in New York on Tuesday.

WATCH: Time lapse video shows 3.5 years of Canadian Museum for Human Rights construction in two minutes.

EarthCam monitored and maintained the construction camera system, then edited the footage into the time lapse video. The two-minute time lapse covers the time from when the construction camera started recording in February 2010 until the building’s shell was completed in August 2013.

The construction camera footage is viewable on the CMHR website.
