Patkau Architects

Patkau Architects is an innovative architecture and design research studio based in Vancouver, Canada. Governor General award-winning architects, principals John and Patricia Patkau have been practicing for over 30 years.

The Patkaus have brought their unique language of space and light to the new Temple design, with an aspiration to create something ‘luminously beautiful in that landscape of yours.’

Patkau Architects welcomed the opportunity to work with our community to explore the creation of sacred space. The design for the new Temple of Light honours its original form and the rich history of the site, all the while capturing an unknowable, luminous essence.
