Organic Design for Northern Climates

In our harsh, cold climate, not all possible design solutions are adequate or optimal. I believe that an architectural response should celebrate its climate, not resist or impose itself on it. By embracing its weather and geographical context, a building will not only shine in durability and sustainability but also in its expression, comfort and financial returns. If we let nature show us the way, like a tree that adapts to the place and climate in which it grows, architecture can adapt to the place and climate where it is built. So is our understanding of organic architecture. Scandinavian architects have for centuries demonstrated that a sophisticated response to their northern climates is durable and technically advantageous and can also be the source of a building’s beauty, comfort, and prestige. We believe that as Canadian architects, we can and should strive to attain the same level of architectural response to our similar climate.
