As an aspiring young musician, painter and writer, Andrew was drawn to architecture through the sage advice of his uncle Fabio, a Milanese architect who convinced him that “all of the other arts happen inside architecture.”
Today, Andrew’s approach to design is driven by a strong social agenda. He uses bold material expressions and considered responses to context to create spaces around which communities form. By maintaining a design philosophy that is open and collaborative, Andrew never stops learning, producing and evolving. His award-winning designs for universities, municipalities, library systems and commercial clients have been published internationally.
Andrew has taught at the University of Toronto, Ryerson University and the University of Waterloo where he remains a visiting critic. He shares his passion for design through exhibitions, published articles and speaking engagements.
