Andrew King, Partner at Lemay, Appointed Fellow of Royal Architectural Institute of Canada

Montréal, Canada

Lemay

Montréal, Canada, 2017-05-25 -

Lemay, one of Canada’s largest and most creative integrated designers of built environments, is proud to announce that its partner and design principal Andrew King will be inducted as a fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC).

 

The RAIC is Canada’s leading voice for excellence in the built environment. Its College of Fellows bestows fellowship in recognition of design excellence, exceptional scholarly contribution or distinguished service to the profession or the community. Mr. King meets several criteria as one of Canada’s most recognized design leaders.

 

“For three decades, Andrew King’s focus has been design excellence, education and advocacy of our profession,” said Louis T. Lemay, president and excellence facilitator at Lemay and an RAIC fellow himself. “He could not be more deserving of this honour.”

 

The coveted fellow designation is conferred through a peer nomination process that, in Mr. King’s case, will culminate in an investiture ceremony on Thursday, May 25, as part of the 2017 Festival of Architecture in Ottawa.

 

About Andrew King 

Since 2015, Andrew King has been a partner and design principal at Lemay. With Eric Pelletier, he leads Lemay’s transdisciplinary design teams, including the firm’s design research and innovation atelier: lemayLab. His pan-Canadian experience and name recognition have led him to direct strategic initiatives across Canada and develop trusted client relationships, as he implements firm-wide design strategies.

 

Andrew King has been committed to design excellence, education and the advocacy of the profession for three decades. He has developed a practice model that merges speculative small practice, large firm design leadership and academic research. After his graduation from Dalhousie University (1990) and formative mentorships with Brian MacKay-Lyons in Halifax and Zaha Hadid in London, Mr. King continued his career in Europe, practicing at leading studios in Seville, Budapest, Rome, Copenhagen and Berlin.

 

In over 20 years of practice leadership, King has been recognized with the profession’s highest and most exclusive accolades and awards, including the Canada Council for the Arts’ Prix de Rome, two Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence and two Progressive Architecture (P/A) Awards from the American Institute of Architecture.

 

Since 1990, King’s ongoing design collaborative, AK A, has produced a long record of transdisciplinary design recognition, publications and exhibitions, and has facilitated the convergence of design and research in academia and practice.


King is an adjunct professor with the McGill University School of Architecture, and has devoted himself to architectural education for almost as long as he has been practising – in Canada, the United States and Europe. He has held McGill’s Gerald Sheff Visiting Professorship in Architecture; has been the Azrieli Visiting Critic at Carleton University’s Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism; and has been a visiting professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. He has been visiting critic, and has lectured and exhibited internationally, at such prestigious venues as Cornell University, the Iceland Academy of Arts, the Tate Gallery, Chicago’s Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership, Ryerson University, the University of Lethbridge, Sapienza University of Rome, New York University in Florence, Toronto’s Design Exchange and Walter Phillips Gallery in Banff.


King’s recent work spans the Canadian context and includes such critically recognized projects as Montreal’s Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM), the new York University Student Centre in Toronto, the Brantford YMCA/Wilfrid Laurier University Recreation Complex, Western University’s Brain and Mind Research Building, a new pavilion for Capilano University Film School in Vancouver, the Hawk House on Nova Scotia’s Cape Sable Island, and the master plan and vision for Ryerson University’s Faculty of Science. At Lemay, he is leading the design of three new mixed-use tower projects in downtown Montreal, as well as Terrebonne’s new community centre and police station, and a new carillon tower and visitor centre for Montreal’s St. Joseph’s Oratory, among others.


With such outstanding recognition as a design leader, and as a key player in the development of the architectural profession, Andrew King is one of the most respected voices in architecture today. He will be speaking on the convergence of design research in practice and academia at the 2017 Festival of Architecture on Thursday, May 25, 2017, along with Christopher Macdonald, FRAIC, full professor and past director of the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the University of British Columbia.

Leveraging its unique blend of creativity, capacity and expertise, Lemay champions its clients' aspirations, enhances users' quality of life and strives to build a brighter future for our communities.
