Since 1987, the award-winning firm of Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects has become one Canada's leading design practices, sustaining fifty professionals in an active studio environment in downtown Toronto. Its work is recognized locally, nationally, and internationally for excellence in architecture, planning, urban design, and interior design.
KPMB's portfolio demonstrates a diversity of projects, from commercial to institutional, ranging in scale from detailed interiors to large-scale construction and planning projects with highly specialized programs. As illustrated in this beautiful, full-color volume, the boundaries between project types are less critical than the intensity and rigor of design and execution at every scale of work.
Tempered by a respect for tradition, context, and sensuous materiality, KPMB's finely crafted assemblages, and expertise at handling forms and shaping new urban configurations sets a high standard for contemporary architecture in Canada. Their collective ideal has resulted in an enduring body of work that has a clarity and simplicity rarely found in the projects of their peers.
