Key Architecture Studios in Canada, North America

post updated 13 May 2023

Canadian Architect – Architect Listings

This page contains a selection of major Canadian architects, with links to individual practice pages. We’ve selected what we feel are the key Canadian Architects, but additions are always welcome. The focus is on contemporary architects in Canada but information on traditional architecture studios is also welcome.

The most celebrated architect from the past is Arthur Erickson. Currently the most notable architecture practice is Saucier + Perrotte, though Frank Gehry is Canadian although more connected with the US where his design studio is based. Diamond and Schmitt Architects and Antoine Predock Architect are also well known outwith Canada.

New Central Library in Calgary
Calgary’s New Central Library aims to welcome over twice as many as previously annual visitors to its 240,000 SF of expanded facilities, the library will fill a vital role for the rapidly expanding city. As Calgary’s largest public investment since the 1988 Olympics, the library signals the beginning of a new chapter in the life of the city, one centered on the creation and innovation of knowledge and culture.

AK Clinic Treatment Room in Brampton, Ontario
Our own human body reveals that beauty or health is symmetrical, balanced, and ordered. The smallest intervention project is a spatial experimentation of these values, converting a typical clinic room of an insignificant footprint into one that transcends its physical boundary and inspires a deeper sense of well-being.
