We are an architecture and design research studio based in Vancouver, Canada. The practice was founded in 1978 by Patricia and John Patkau. We deliver a wide variety of project types, ranging in scale from art installations to custom homes and major urban buildings.  Over the years, the office has been recognized with numerous awards for excellence in design. A collection of our architectural research, Material Operations, is now available from Princeton Architectural Press.
