Gregory Henriquez is the Managing Partner of Henriquez Partners Architects and a leader among a new generation of architects who are reintegrating ethics and activism into the discipline. His work is founded on the belief that meaningful architecture must be a poetic expression of social justice.
Gregory’s socially, culturally, and environmentally sustainable projects are having a major impact on shaping local communities. He recently completed the socially inclusive Woodward’s Redevelopment in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside—a project that is bringing new density and vital body heat to the area. The project is unprecedented in Canada due to its scale, humanitarian aspirations, and complexity. It was awarded a 2011 AIBC Special Jury Award for Outstanding Programming and Place-making. Currently, Gregory is the Design Architect for TELUS Garden, which will bring Vancouver its first LEED Platinum-certified office tower.
Gregory’s work has been honoured with numerous design awards, including BC Lieutenant Governor’s Medals in Architecture for the Coal Harbour Community Centre and Bruce Eriksen Place, and a Governor General’s Medal in Architecture for the Lore Krill Housing Co-op. A member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, Gregory holds a Bachelor of Architecture with Distinction from Carleton University. He studied at McGill University’s Master of Architecture Program in History and Theory and has taught at the University of British Columbia and the Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
