Devine Architecture 

by James Mullinger

James Mullinger interviews Ontario-born, Quebec-trained and New York-career architect Sanaz Shirshekar on moving to New Brunswick and doing her most personal work to date. 

The Petitcodiac Baptist congregation has been a vital and vibrant part of this southern New Brunswick, Westmorland County community for 182 years. Built in 1879, its church building was a majestic example of Gothic Revival architecture. Originally built on Renfrew Street, it was relocated to the corner of Old Post Road and Renfrew Street in 1910, where it served as the very heart of congregational life for the people of this tight-knit community. Pastor David Woodworth, at the helm since July 2011, welcomed over 200 people to the Sunday-morning worship services. Even more people used the space for workshops, family gatherings, parties, classes and other vital activities.

Structured Plans

By Jennifer Wood

Let us share something truly remarkable with you. Five short years after it was founded, Nova Scotia’s Peter Braithwaite Studio has been recognized by Wallpaper* magazine as being one of the most promising practices in the world.

The firm’s founder, Peter Braithwaite, who is originally from Kingsville, Ontario, is passionate about whatever he commits to and has grown comfortable taking risks to realize his evolving aspirations. While he is a highly sought-after architect, his roots lie in carpentry and construction. Earlier in his career, he recognized a deep desire to have artistic direction over the structures he was building so, in 2007, he traded in his tool belt for a laptop to study at the Dalhousie University School of Architecture in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He received the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Student Medal for achieving the highest level of academic excellence in his graduating class, and he now serves as adjunct professor at his alma mater.

Genius Loci

by James Mullinger 

An exclusive interview with renowned architect Omar Gandhi.

Brampton-born, Halifax-based architect Omar Gandhi was described as “Canada’s next top architect” by The Globe and Mail in 2016.

Gandhi, the recipient of the 2014 Canada Council for the Arts Professional Prix de Rome, was one of Wallpaper* magazine’s 2014 top 20 young architects in the world. He was also named as one of the Architectural League of New York’s Emerging Voices of 2016 and one of Monocle magazine’s 20 most influential Canadians.
