The Toronto office of Kasian has added Paul Szaszkiewicz — previously of Diamond and Schmitt Architects where he was Principal and Director from 2003 to 2008 — as Principal.
Paul graduated from the University of Waterloo’s School of Architecture in 1993, and joined Diamond and Schmitt Architects in 1996. As a Principal and Director from 2003 to 2008, he lead large interdisciplinary design teams across Canada for projects including the UBC Life Sciences Centre (LEED Gold), the Bellini Pavilion and Goodman Cancer Research Centre at McGill University, the Edmonds Library in Burnaby, the City of North Vancouver Civic Precinct Plan and Library, the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute at St. Michael’s Hospital, and the SickKids Education and Research Tower in Toronto.
“Paul is a great asset to the Kasian team and we are fortunate to have him,” said Don Kasian, president of the global architecture and interior design firm. “Toronto is known for its architecture and we’re growing our Toronto office to keep pace with the city’s needs and with the needs of our clientele.”
Kasian designs include Brockville General Master Program, the new Hanger for 8 Wing CFB Trenton, Belleville General Hospital Sills Wing addition and renovation, Calgary Courts Centre, the Vancouver International Airport Link Building, the University of British Columbia Thunderbird Arena, the EPCOR tower, the MacEwan Robbins Health Learning Centre, and the Alberta Children’s Hospital.
