George Baird, Barry Sampson, Jon Neuert. Baird Sampson Neuer Architects

Baird Sampson Neuert architects is a Toronto-based architecture firm in Canada. BSN has been in practice for more than four decades, during which time it has assembled a team with a great depth of creative talent and experience. Its many achievements in architecture, urbanism, and sustainability have established a reputation for creative research, as well as design excellence. Founded by George Baird in 1972, the firm rapidly gained a national profile for its innovative approaches to urban design.

The practice expanded when Barry Sampson became a partner in 1982 and again in 1998 when Jon Neuert, also a registered architect, became a principal. All three principals were elected Fellows of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada as a result of their history of achievement. George Baird received the RAIC Gold Medal, its highest award.

BSN has a 45+ year history of award-winning projects that advance sustainable design and technical achievements in Canadian architecture.

The firm has received three Governor General’s Awards (the highest architecture award in Canada) and an American Institute of Architects Honour Award (the highest award in the United States).
