Bruce Kuwabara, partner in the Toronto firm Kuwabara, Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects, has received a RAIC Gold medal for his career achievements. Larry Wayne Richards notes:

“Over the past 30 years, Canada has come to know Bruce Kuwabara as one of the country’s most talented architects. And, increasingly, he is recognized as a sophisticated urbanist. From his collaborative contributions to large urban projects with Barton Myers in the 1970s, to his conceptions for complex city-fabric insertions in the past decade....Kuwabara has demonstrated remarkable leadership as an accomplished architect-urbanist with a very particular sense of the design and health of cities.”

Despite the many economic fluctuations in Canada's architectural marketplace over the last three decades, Kuwabara managed to build a body of exceptional, coherent work. His commitment to a rigorous, minimal design aesthetic long preceded the current interest in minimalist architecture. Kuwabara is a graduate of the University of Toronto's School of Architecture.
