Omar Gandhi Architect is a Canadian architectural firm established in 2010, with two studios located in Halifax and Toronto. Gandhi’s firm is known for its work blending contemporary architectural style with rural vernacular influences, and for sensitivity to the natural landscape of Canada’s Atlantic coast, where the majority of the work is found. Omar Gandhi Architect has received the Professional Prix de Rome in Architecture and a Governor General’s Medal in Architecture. The exhibition will chronicle the roots of the studio and how it developed to become one of the most influential young practices in the world - through a deep respect for precedent, context, and traditional processes alongside incredible people. Completed projects in the Canadian landscape will be featured in-depth through sketches, construction photos, drawings and physical models.
