David is an architect who has led the design for many of the Stantec’s award winning healthcare, research, and education projects in the United Kingdom and the United States. He is particularly interested in design which creates a memorable sense of place while promoting a sense of clarity, optimism, and engagement. He believes the built environment can and should enrich peoples’ lives.
David’s work responds to context in enhancing cohesion with surroundings and strives to fully synthesise functional requirements with formal expression so that architecture becomes the backdrop for positive experiences and interaction while reflecting the rich contributions occupants and visitors make to society.
Recent notable projects include the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health at the University of British Columbia, the Tertiary Paediatric Children’s Hospital for the King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre in the GCC, and Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre.
