Over 25 years of practice, Peter Clewes has established a reputation as one of Canada’s most adventurous architects, behind some of the most innovative residential buildings in North America. He has extensive experience in all aspects of the process, from planning and economics to design and construction.
Peter’s notable projects include the award-winning Terrence Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research at U of T; the Kaiser Computer Science and Engineering Building at UBC; mixed use development projects in Canada, the US and Europe; and the first ‘green’ student housing in Canada: the Pond Road Residence at York University.
His innovative residential projects have been published internationally, and have received awards from the Ontario Association of Architects (OAA), Canadian Architect, and the City of Toronto. For his work on the TDCCBR, he shares three awards with Adrian DiCastri and Stefan Behnisch, from the Royal Institute of British Architects, Architectural Record and Business Week Magazines, and the OAA.
In 2005 Peter was appointed to the Waterfront Design Review Panel for the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization Corporation.
