Great thread. Ive had an eye on this one for a while...
How about something like this:
Partisans of Canada seem to be doing interesting urban research work in addition to conventional projects
So in the spirit of keeping this thread a useful resource, thanks to the contributions of several people, I have compiled the running list of suggestions and links provided so far (organized chronologically).

Can I ask if you have worked with goskwerl ? Or if anybody has, sounds like an interesting proposition, especially for those who need to freelance, due to personal circumstances. I just checked it out and I can't access the kind of jobs they have, w/o registering....thanks..
what about the non-architects, Heatherwick et al? great list techtonic.
definitely Woods Bagot, NBBJ w/ Andrew Heumann. Albeit corporate, these firms have impacted the practice in a tangible manner, through his computational leadership.
one that is missing is KieranTimberlake, and their advancement of a performance based research practice
I am not a fan of Karim Rashid's work but looks like he's also going the route of consolidating the developer+arch firm model (Kurv Architecture) to have his projects realized. It will be interesting to see if he is able to get more of his work built as a result because regardless of arguments over aesthetics, we could possibly learn a thing or two from Rashid's business sensibilities...
Thanks jimimimi, looking into Architecture 00 I found the Wikihouse foundation which is an ambitious and interesting concept. An open source architectural knowledge platform is something everyone could use
