A few days ago BlogTO posted their list of the Toronto’s Top 15 Architects which you can check out here. The list is comprised of a broad spectrum of firms that vary in size as well as the types of projects they do. Of course this list is easily debated – something already underway in the comments section – however, it serves as a great starting point. It is also nice to see people taking interest the architects behind the buildings in their city.
Ottawa is not Toronto. We are not as large and there are less firms to choose from but that doesn’t mean that we lack local talent. So I’m posing the question: Who do you think are Ottawa’s Top 5 Architects? Let us know in the comments.
Do you think Barry Hobin, perhaps one of the best known local architects, should be included on the list? What about BBB Architects, the architecture firm behind the new Ottawa Convention Centre? Would you include Colizza Bruni Architects or Linebox; two firms responsible for some of the interesting infill projects being built around the city. How about Christopher Simmonds, Barry Padolsky, or Paul Kariouk?
