July 12, 2018 | Design Series

The inaugural Design Conversation Series with renowned Toronto based architects, Brigitte Shim, Hon. FAIA, and Howard Sutcliffe, Hon. FAIA, of Shim-Sutcliffe Architects.

Brigitte and Howard led a conversation about their design philosophy and share examples of their work. 

Brigitte Shim and Howard Sutcliffe are principals of Shim-Sutcliffe Architects based in Toronto, Canada. Ms. Shim is a Professor at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto, and has held numerous visiting professorships at institutions such as Yale University and Harvard University.

Shim-Sutcliffe’s projects have won local, national and international recognition and awards. Their built work has been exhibited internationally and has been published globally. They have been honored with fourteen Governor General’s Medals and Awards for Architecture from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada along with an American Institute of Architects National Honour Award.

Completed work includes The Integral House, Corkin Gallery, Weathering Steel House, Muskoka Boathouse, Craven Road House and Studio, Ravine Guest House, Laneway House, House on Hurricane Lake, and Garden Pavilion and Reflecting Pool. Each project responds to its specific site conditions, and seeks to investigate new relationships between exterior and interior. Shim-Sutcliffe are currently working on two innovative projects on the island of Oahu in the early stages of construction.

Thank you for opening this beautiful home and keeping the legacy and details alive.
