We also have an associated arm for our R&D and commercialization activity to digitally program genetic designproducts or buildings that can automatically adjust to fit the needs of many different clients.
Patrick is a registered architect in both British Columbia and Ontario as well as a member of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. He graduated from the School of Architecture + Landscape Architecture at the University of British Columbia following a degree in Biomedical Science. He merged these two fields to create a genetic design approach as an evolving architectural strategy and has filed patents resulting from this research. Patrick has been the recipient of several awards, including those from the government, private sector, and academia. Patrick has also previously taught as a Sessional Instructor at the McEwen School of Architecture.
Jeremy is an Intern Architect who graduated from the McEwen School of Architecture in its charter class. His focus is centered around emerging technologies and their potential role in the industry. Jeremy’s thesis challenged the norms of computer aided design to allow for a more fluid design process. He believes technology should not bind us, but allow more freedom and expression.
Isabelle is an architecture student at the McEwen School of Architecture with a declared minor in Environmental Studies. Her interest and research in sustainable, reconciliatory and regenerative methods of design have influenced her to further evaluate architecture’s impact on the built environment.
