been my privilege to practise architecture in my firm, either
on my own, or with partners, for more than 50 years.
After graduating from the School of Architecture
at the University of Toronto a decade after the Second World
War, I became committed to developing architecture that had
a positive social impact.
I have worked on a wide variety of architectural tasks;
each taught me something new. I approach every commission
without preconceived ideas and believe that a project
should be defined by the client, the site, budget, function
and other human factors.
Through my career I have been very fortunate to work
with clients who have given me the freedom necessary
realize a vision for their projects.
Today, I am just as
enthusiatic about architecture as I was the day I graduated.
