Brigitte Shim along with her partner Howard Sutcliffe formed the award winning design practice Shim Sutcliffe Architects (Toronto), reflecting their shared interest and passion for the integration of architecture, landscape and furniture.
Their projects small and large engage directly with light, water and landscape, as well as the intensification and revitalization of urban centers. Current projects include a synagogue for the Congregation Bet Ha’am in Maine, the permanent installation of the Frum African Collection in Ontario and a residential complex and chapel for the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto.
The firm’s interest in the construction and fabrication of buildings, sites and their intersections has forced them to question fundamental relationships between object and ground, building and landscape, man and nature. Brigitte Shim is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto and a visiting professor at Yale, Harvard and École Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne.
