Ouri is a Tlicho Dene Architect, part of the leadership at Urban Arts + Architecture, and is driven to give voice to Indigenous communities through design. As a designer, she looks to develop a modern design language to react and respond to contemporary First Nations culture. She is passionate about sustainable architecture, and sees it as honoring her role as a steward of the land.
Ouri was one of 18 Indigenous architects and designers from across Canada and the U.S. showcasing their work as part of UNCEDED: Voices of the Land – the first-ever Indigenous-led entry to be presented by Canada at the Venice Biennale of Architecture. She is also the proud mother of two young boys.
