Architect

Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)


BIG is a Copenhagen and New York based group of architects, designers, builders and thinkers operating within the fields of architecture, urbanism, research and development. The office is currently involved in a large number of projects throughout Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East. BIG’s architecture emerges out of a careful analysis of how contemporary life constantly evolves and changes. Not least due to the influence from multicultural exchange, global economical flows and communication technologies that all together require new ways of architectural and urban organization. We believe that in order to deal with today’s challenges, architecture can profitably move into a field that has been largely unexplored. A pragmatic utopian architecture that steers clear of the petrifying pragmatism of boring boxes and the naïve utopian ideas of digital formalism. Like a form of programmatic alchemy we create architecture by mixing conventional ingredients such as living, leisure, working, parking and shopping. By hitting the fertile overlap between pragmatic and utopia, we architects once again find the freedom to change the surface of our planet, to better fit contemporary life forms.

Westbank has built a practice around long-term commitments to artistry, sustainability and city-building. These commitments underlie an orientation towards projects like Woodwards, Vancouver House, Mirvish Village, Telus Garden and Oakridge – catalysts for larger change that go beyond the borders of the projects themselves. We are here to create. To provoke. To ignite. We are the vehicle for a new movement of cultural expression.


At any given time, the team is involved in projects at every scale, from the micro to the macro level. We are involved in multiple public art commissions, with nearly 30 installations by some of the world’s most accomplished artists either complete or underway. We are conducting our piano program with Fazioli, building a collection of instruments that exemplify the integration of art and architecture.


The core of Westbank’s mission is to create a body of work with a high degree of artistry that helps foster more equitable and beautiful cities. Westbank is active across Canada and in the United States, with projects including luxury residential, Five Star hotels, retail, office, rental, district energy systems, affordable housing initiatives and public art. Established in 1992, we are one of North America’s leading developers, with offices in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Seattle, Shanghai, Beijing, Taiwan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shenzhen and over 25 billion dollars of projects completed or under development.


Allied is a leading owner, manager and developer of distinctive urban workspace in Canada’s major cities. Allied’s objectives are to provide stable and growing cash distributions to unitholders and to maximize unitholder value through effective management and accretive portfolio growth.


Since 1990's, Allied’s commitment to historical preservation and adaptation went against the grain, defying the conventional wisdom that “new” was best. It wasn’t an easy journey—it took an uncompromising belief in the work that we do. In bringing this vision to life, we have helped shape the creative, innovative communities that drive change globally.


Today, Allied continues to transform the workspace of the future, applying the principles of traditional brick-and-beam architecture—high ceilings, exposed brick, hardwood floors, open concepts, ample natural light—to ambitious large-scale new developments built to anticipate the evolving needs of future innovators and leaders.


“The cities we build have to be sustainable and conducive to human wellness, diversity and creativity.  Put differently, they have to elevate and inspire the humanity in all of us.”  MICHAEL EMORY
