Ottawa's Coolest Architects & Designers

Ar·chi·tec·ture - The art or practice of designing and constructing buildings.

Have you ever walked or drove past a building that stopped you in your tracks so you could marvel in the fresh, unique and interesting look? This happens to me all the time - right here in our very city! I love taking in the interesting angles, materials and textures, all brought together to form a beautiful and amazing composition. Building design is truly a work of art that requires an immense amount of planning, designing, and constructing. The amount of time between creating an idea for a building and finishing the final touches can take months or sometimes even years. Architecture has such a fantastic history to it, and I will most definitely dive into that in an upcoming post as well.

For now, I have compiled a list of Ottawa’s best architects and designers. Many of their buildings are familiar and you will most likely recognize some of them. Please note that the order I have placed these architects in is completely random and there is no form of hierarchy – I could never choose who is the best.

The pieces I have selected are a few of my favourite designs in Ottawa and the surrounding area. Enjoy!
