We’re pleased to share that partners Kevin Bridgman and Andrew Dyke have been inducted into the Royal Architecture Institute of Canada’s (RAIC) College of Fellows. Fellows are recognized for their contributions to research, scholarship, public service, and professional standing for the good of architecture in Canada and around the world. It is one of the College’s highest membership honours.

In 2021, KPMB announced a major milestone in its evolution: an expansion of its leadership team. As part of the expansion, Bridgman and Dyke were made partners. The diverse perspectives and wealth of experience they both hold has led to the success of many of the firm’s acclaimed projects.

Throughout his time at KPMB, Bridgman has made significant contributions to the firm’s consistent design excellence. He is an exceptional architect who has passionately led integrated design teams for extraordinary projects including Downsview Framework Plan, and the James Stewart Centre for Mathematics at McMaster University and Vaughan City Hall, both recipients of Governor General’s Awards. He also co-led the design of KPMB’s workplace – a vibrant, creative place of connected neighbourhood-like studios. He is currently leading the design team expanding and modernizing Calgary’s Arts Commons, the largest performing arts centre in Western Canada.

For more than three decades, Dyke has exhibited strength in comprehensive design and adept project management of multidisciplinary teams,  directing all phases of design and construction for major institutional, government, and private projects. His project work includes Le Quartier Concordia for Concordia University, an interdisciplinary research facility that represented Canada at the Sustainable Building Conference in Oslo; the Fort York Library, recognized as a “tremendous community asset” by the Ontario Library Association; and the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games Athletes’ Village and its post-games conversion to the Canary District. He is currently leading the team working on Kindred Works, a portfolio of residential projects designed for a climate resilient future;

Both Bridgman and Dyke are passionate about designing environments that have the power to improve the quality of people’s lives. Their projects prioritize craftsmanship, equity, diversity, accessibility and inclusion.

Fellows will be officially inducted into the RAIC College at the RAIC Conference in May.
