PUBLIC Architecture

PUBLIC Architecture is an interdisciplinary design studio comprised of architects, branding and interiors specialists, signage designers and visitor experience designers.

We're a design office working at the intersection of media and the built environment. We build dynamic public spaces that people can connected with.

PUBLIC Architecture builds culture and shape identity. Our work creates spatial experiences–beyond buildings–to the city at large, capable of spurring transformation, engagement and renewal.

Off Grid 18 in Summary

Off Grid 18 in Summary

“Off Grid 18,”the second-annual international experiential graphic design event created by the Wellington Chapter of SEGD, transpired over four days and four cities in late February. The theme was “Experiential City,” which posed the question, “What is the ‘experiential city’ and where does design fit in?”

Through insights from social anthropologists, urban planners, strategic thinkers, visionary designers, contemporary artists, filmmakers, brand identity designers, augmented reality experts and smart city researchers, Off Grid explores what really connects people to place.

"Start an Evolution" Donor Recognition

Merit Award 2017
"Start an Evolution"Donor Recognition

This interactive light installation located at the heart of the University of British Columbia, provides a colorful expression of thanks to the over 4,000 donors to the University's "start an evolution" fundraising campaign, which raised an unprecedented two billion dollars.

The University asked PUBLIC: Architecture + Communication to design an engaging, permanent and timeless outdoor feature that would give thanks to the donors to their recent "start an evolution" fundraising campaign. The brief was to create anything but a typical donor wall.

Pollinator Park

Finalist 2017
Pollinator Park

This street art enlivens a derelict industrial wall surrounding Vancouver's newest pop-up park. The site, an urban garden dedicated to promoting pollinators–bees—in the city, is a former industrial site on a block that will eventually be developed entirely into park. Until then, one corner of the block is being dedicated as a park with homes for bees. Until the next stage of development, the borders of the park would have been stark grey walls.

As part of a larger courtyard renovation project, PUBLIC: Architecture was asked to create a visual expression of what it means to study arts at the University of British Columbia. The Faculty of Arts consists of 26 schools, from Economics to Classical, Near Eastern, and Religious Studies. To craft a singular message of interconnectedness, PUBLIC asked faculty representatives to supply a quote or phrase that struck at the core value of their field of study.
