Partner Bruno Weber joins distinguished jury for 2023 World Architecture Festival
November 27, 2023
This week, partner Bruno Weber joins the international jury for the 2023 World Architecture Festival (WAF) Awards — the only awards program where finalists present their projects live to a panel of judges.
Weber, who has been with KPMB since 2000, stands out for his dedication to innovation and community impact. His architectural philosophy goes beyond aesthetics and is rooted in a commitment to creating spaces that cultivate community.
His portfolio includes competition-winning designs such as the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and Pier 8, and his interest in socio-economic justice has led to work with Indigenous Northern Housing and the NRCC Path to Healthy Homes Program for Indigenous Communities.
“I’m truly honoured for this opportunity to celebrate the best in architecture and help foster a dynamic exchange of ideas about the power of design to address some of the most pressing issues of our time,” said Weber. “WAF provides a unique global platform to engage in meaningful dialogue about the future of architecture and I’m excited to be part of the conversation.”
Weber has also played a key role in projects aimed at revitalizing major urban precincts into vibrant, pedestrian-friendly destinations, including SugarCube in Denver’s historic district, Tyndale Green, a lively mixed-use district coming to North York, and Dream LeBreton, a housing development in Ottawa designed to be affordable, sustainable, and socially equitable.
This year, Dream LeBreton, along with the Montreal Holocaust Museum and the Center for Computing & Data Sciences at Boston University are WAF Awards finalists. The event will be held from November 29 – December 1 in Singapore.
