Patkau Architects to design Audain Art Museum in Whistler


Audain Art Museum board member Jim Moodie recently announced that the new art museum planned for Whistler, BC will be designed by internationally renowned Patkau Architects Inc. of Vancouver.

John and Patricia Patkau, both members of the Order of Canada, have been recognized for their award-winning projects in many parts of Canada and abroad. Earlier this year the Patkaus’ work was represented in the Five North American Architects exhibition in the international section of the 2012 Venice Biennale for Architecture.

Thirteen of their projects have received Governor General’s Awards for Architecture, but they have never been invited before to undertake a cultural project in British Columbia.

“We are delighted that John and Pat have agreed to undertake this commission,” said Moodie. He added, “It will, no doubt, result in an exciting building which will add to the diversity of things to enjoy in Whistler.”
