Shim-Sutcliffe Architects, Toronto, Canada
Thurs 20 March, 6.30pm Eng 401
Brigitte Shim and her partner Howard Sutcliffe are recipients of a 2014 University of Auckland Distinguished Visitors Award. In their work Shim-Sutcliffe seek to intertwine light, water and landscape in exploratory and innovative ways while reflecting their shared interest and passion for the integration and interrelated scales of architecture, landscape and furniture. In her lecture Shim will link their early work and recent work and the shifting scales within each project and in their larger body of work.
Shim teaches at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto and regularly teaches design at Yale University. Shim-Sutcliffe has been widely published, received twelve Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Governor General’s Medals and Awards for Architecture and last year they were both awarded the Order of Canada. In 2012 Kenneth Frampton chose Shim-Sutcliffe Architects for his Five North American Architects exhibition at the Venice Biennale.
