January 16, 2018

Patkau Architects, a Vancouver firm led by John and Patricia Patkau, has recently won the prestigious 2018 American Institute of Architects (AIA) award. With only eight awarded to innovative projects this year, Patkau was the only Canadian firm to receive the award for their work on the museum that showcases the collection of philanthropist Michael Audain. Incorporating wood as a principle element throughout the design, the museum brings out the natural setting of Whistler where this treasured collection of art resides.
