About the speaker
Originally from Windsor, Ontario Andrew grew-up in a family with strong ties to the automotive industry. From a young age however Andrew discovered his passion lay outside this industry and decided to pursue what quickly became a very clear journey in his life, Architecture. Andrew’s passion for the discipline continued to grow during his first employment at Archon Architects inc. and during his first years at St.Clair College and Lawrence Tech University.
In 1997 he moved to Ottawa to seek better opportunities and attend the School of Architecture at Carleton University. While attending Carleton, Andrew was hired as a Junior Designer at Brisbin Brook Beynon Architects. He progressed in his role at BBB to become a Senior Project Design Lead reporting to Richard Brisbin, a partner at the firm. In this role Andrew gained invaluable experience working on a wide range of large-scale projects including: The Ottawa Airport, Lansdowne Park Redevelopment, Ottawa Congress Center and The Ontario Medical Association Headquarters. Working on large-scale projects provided Andrew will great skills but left him feeling disconnected from the projects and their clients. In 2006 Andrew left BBB to open his own firm, Linebox Studio Inc. He identified a need in Ottawa for modern sustainable infills and looked to provide people and businesses with fresh, sustainable and progressive design options.
