Felix Schwimmer Atelier Schwimmer

Atelier Schwimmer is a design office led by Felix Schwimmer. He born in Quebec of Canadian nationality, Korean and Dutch origin, working in French, English and Italian. He has lived in Indonesia, Canada, Italy, China and the United Kingdom. His approach is influenced as much by a rigorous approach to cultural analysis as by his interest in explorations of contemporary art.

In 2006 he undertook professional experiences in Italy, China and the United Kingdom, marked by a stint at the Dutch firm OMA, followed by a return to academic studies in architectural design at the Bartlett school of Architecture. Upon his return to professional practice, he took a particular interest in the formal genesis of an architectural project.

This interest in research culminates in recognition from the Quebec Council for the Arts and Letters, nominating him architect in residence at the British School at Rome 2012. In 2014, he returned to settle in Montreal and practiced under the name of Atelier Schwimmer.
