Patkau Architects is an architecture and design research studio based in Vancouver, Canada. The practice is led by four principals, John Patkau, Patricia Patkau, David Shone, and Greg Boothroyd; and two associates, Peter Suter and Shane O’Neill. Their comprehensive involvement throughout all phases of design and construction consistently results in projects recognized for architectural innovation and quality.

In over 35 years of practice, the studio has been responsible for a wide variety of project types, ranging in scale from art installations to major urban buildings. Current work includes the Polygon Gallery in North Vancouver; the Audain Art Museum in Whistler, the Yasodhara Ashram in Kootenay Lake; the Capilano Library in Edmonton; the Faculty of Music in Winnipeg, and several private residences.

The practice is also actively engaged in architectural research. Their current work explores the potential resulting from the response of materials to applications of force.
