common.menu.about

Gregory Henriquez is the Managing Principal and a leader amongst a generation of architects who are reintegrating ethics and activism into the discipline. His work is founded on the belief that meaningful architecture must be a poetic expression of social justice. Gregory has shaped Henriquez’s current practice, which is now best known for complex, inclusive and mixed-use projects. The Woodward’s Redevelopment completed in 2011 in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, remains unprecedented in Canada due to its scale, humanitarian aspirations and complexity. Elected to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, Gregory has four published books: Towards an Ethical Architecture, Body Heat, Citizen City and most recently coming this June, GHETTO : Sanctuary for Sale.
