aA is a design-driven studio. We encourage fresh thinking, honest questions and tough decisions. We work collaboratively: every member of a project team – including our client – has a voice. A core team, led by our Principal and one or more Associates, is assigned to each project, to ensure ultimate accountability and responsive day-by-day stewardship of our clients’ goals. Our collaborative approach extends to the composition of our project teams: aA has collaborated with other architects in Canada, the US and Europe; lab and LEED® consultants in the US and Germany; and engineers in cities across Canada. In design as in nature, cross-pollination breeds strength, diversity and innovation.
