1. Workplace | Nom de la firme

Acre Architects 

2. Why do you love being an architect? | Pourquoi aimez-vous être un architecte? 

There is never a dull moment being an Architect. I love change, and every day is different. There is always something new to create. New experiences and stories to help craft, new technologies and old histories to learn about. Its applied continual learning. 

3. What piece of New Brunswick architecture inspires you & why? | Quelle œuvre architecturale du Nouveau-Brunswick vous inspire et pourquoi? 

I love the simplicity and straightforwardness of rural agricultural architecture in this province. The structures that these farmers created were functional, set into the landscape, sometimes bold in their colour or structure and have stood the test of time. Something that most buildings built today don't even strive for. 

4. What advice would you give someone considering a career in architecture? | Quel conseil donneriez-vous à une personne qui envisage une carrière en architecture? 

If you want the ability to have a massive impact on the world in the upcoming future, architecture will be a place to help create that future. The world is changing and Architects are going to need to be at the decision table in creating how we experience this new world and will be the major part in reducing emissions.
