click for the Patkau website

Patkau architects has been crafting fabulous architecture for a couple of decades now. Their playful interlocking and colliding forms create interesting geometries and very lively spaces that have worked great in both residential as well as their many public projects. They are socially aware, incorporating environmental principals and involving the community for their betterment. Their early schools are famous for creating great architecture in disadvantaged communities, with their exquisite models serving as three-dimensional framing “drawings” so that the labour in the community could be part of the construction teams. Simple materials used well create great spaces.
