5468796 Architecture is a Winnipeg-based design studio established in 2007. Working around a single table, the office unites the diverse knowledge and experience of fourteen young professionals. Together, they believe that every client, user and civic environment – regardless of budget – deserves an outcome that advances architecture.
Recent firm recognitions include the Rice Design Alliance Spotlight Award, the RAIC Emerging Architectural Practice Award and the WAN 21 for 21 Award, an international prize whose aim is to highlight 21 architects who could be the leading lights of architecture in the 21st century. The office makes design advocacy an ongoing pursuit through university professorships and various public engagements. In 2012, 5468796 co-curated Migrating Landscapes, Canada’s official submission to the Venice Biennale in Architecture. In 2013, the Canada Council for the Arts awarded 5468796 the Professional Prix de Rome in Architecture for their project, Table for 12, which allowed them to visit and research cities around the world with a thriving design culture. Their work has received a number of awards and honours, including a Governor General’s Medal in Architecture and an RAIC Award of Excellence for both OMS Stage and Bloc_10, Progressive Architecture Awards for Bond Tower and BGBX, and the 2014 WAF Future Project of the Year Award for their shortlisted competition design for the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
