Architecture is the art of creating a meaningful whole out of many divergent parts.
Bing Thom Architects (BTA) is an innovative and global architectural practice with a growing emphasis on civic and institutional projects. Founded in Vancouver in 1982, our firm is led by principals Bing Thom and Michael Heeney with a staff of over 45 who originate from a dozen different countries and bring equally diverse language skills and cultural understanding. We are known for design excellence and the ability to integrate site master planning, architecture and urban design, often with a compelling ‘big idea’ to inspire and engage people and communities. BTA has been the recipient of numerous honours and awards, including the 2011 RAIC Gold Medal, Canada’s highest honour in architecture, and the 2010 RAIC Architectural Firm Award.
