5468796 Architecture Inc. is a Winnipeg-based collaborative that engages in all aspects of design, from furnishings to urban fabric.
Established in 2007, the studio’s most valuable resource is an ongoing dialogue rooted in curiosity and play, generating innovative architectural solutions within modest budgetary constraints. Creativity is paramount, not as a manifestation of individual preference, but rather as a direct response to client, context and program.
In the past four years, 5468796 has designed and completed several nationally and internationally recognized architectural projects, which have been featured in numerous award competitions and publications. Recent recognitions include shortlisted projects for the 2011 World Architecture Festival, inclusion in the 2011 Design Vanguard issue of Architectural Record, an AR Future Projects Award for youCUBE, a Royal Architecture Institute of Canada Award of Excellence for OMS Stage, and Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence for three consecutive years.
5468796 makes design advocacy an ongoing pursuit through critical practice, professorships at the University of Manitoba, and various public engagements. In 2012, the studio – in collaboration with Jae-Sung Chon – will curate Canada’s submission to the Venice Biennale in Architecture.
