  Architecture transforms chaos into order, allowing us to positively shape the future of our cities and communities.

Cecilia Einarson

Principal, Sector Leader, Airports (Terminals)

Vancouver, British Columbia

Cecilia and her team are all about high standards and quality. From how they serve their clients to the team spirit and collaboration that they bring into every project. A registered architect with over 25 years of experience, Cecilia has spent the majority of her time working hands-on in airport terminal projects.

Starting her career working with Arthur Erickson (one of the greatest Canadian architects), Cecilia quickly discovered the excitement of having an impact on cities and communities. As our airport terminals sector lead, Cecilia manages airport projects by calling on her understanding of airport client needs and stakeholder expectations. She always endeavors to deliver exceptional projects and design excellence.  

Recently, Cecilia has led projects at the Vancouver International airport, the Edmonton International Airport, and the Iqaluit Airport—which was the first P3 airport in North America. In Santiago, Chile, Cecilia worked on the Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport, where her Spanish language fluency was pivotal to the delivery of the project. When the design of the project was complete, the client wrote: “The results are outstanding thanks to a team of highly specialized professionals, their expertise in airport engineering, and to their vision of working together with the client.”


I recently collaborated on an article for ArchiExpo that journalist Daniel Allen J. is soon to publish.

As part of my love of travelling, I bring an iPad to read my books anywhere I go. I’m currently reading The Inevitable, a great book about how technology could shape the future looking ahead 30 years.

If you want to know how much impact our work on the new Iqaluit Airport had on the community, look no further than Chris Windeyer’s article for Up Here Business.

Airports International published a great article about the challenges facing the Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport. Our work there created a stronger international gateway for Chile and a comfortable program for connecting passengers.

Turning an airport into a great travelling experience is one of my constant goals—and with my love and appreciation for the Arts, my work at the Vancouver Airport Art Foundation Board, hit all the right notes.
