It is with great pride and pleasure that we announce that Partner Emeritus Chris Radigan has been awarded his Fellowship with the RAIC. Chris has been a key contributor to the growth and success of Teeple Architects since its inception in 1989. Chris’ leadership and knowledge were instrumental in the realization of acclaimed projects including the Governor General’s Medal-winning Chemical Sciences Complex at Trent University, the University of Toronto’s Graduate House, the Stephen Hawking Centre at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, and the recently completed Trent University Student Centre. Throughout his distinguished career, Chris has also helped the evolution of housing design, most notably managing the 60 Richmond East Housing Cooperative in Toronto, also the winner of a Governor General’s Medal. Chris has made an invaluable contribution to architecture in Canada through both the built work he has overseen and his involvement in exhibitions, events and the culture of our office. He has served as a model of leadership to a generation of young designers.
