Carol Phillips | BES, B.Arch., OAA (BCDS), NSAA, AIBC, LEED AP, FRAIC
Since joining Moriyama & Teshima Architects in 2005, Carol has led some of the firm’s most valued civic, cultural and educational buildings. She immediately distinguished herself upon arrival at MTA with her first completed project, the award-winning Multi-faith Centre at the University of Toronto which won six design awards and was published in five countries. This centre continues to serve diverse communities with grace, accommodating inclusivity and intercultural understanding — underlying principles that inform all of Carol’s projects.
Carol has spearheaded projects like the Humber College Student Welcome & Resource Centre and the Humber College Athletic Centre, as well as the new Parliament Hill Visitor Welcome Centre, currently under construction. She is currently leading Ryerson’s new Centre for Urban Sustainability and Innovation and the UBC Okanagan Teaching and Learning Centre.
With a passionate drive for powerful and graceful architectural solutions developed over 20 years of working in Canada and abroad, Carol’s complete design and collaborative skills allow her to drive and lead every phase of a building project. Her exceptional and versatile design leadership drives the vision for designs of varying building programmes, reinforcing the principles of generous, inspiring spaces that serve their communities.
Brian Rudy | BES, B.Arch., OAA, NSAA, AIBC, FRAIC
Brian Rudy has been with Moriyama & Teshima Architects since 2001, specializing in the planning and design of major institutional, corporate and cultural facilities. Brian was the Project Architect for the Canadian War Museum, winner of a Governor-General’s Medal, where he expedited the delivery of a large, complex building under an extremely compressed schedule of 36 months from the start of design to occupancy. He was also the Project Architect for the Waterloo Region Museum, recipient of an OAA Design Excellence Award, and the Niagara Falls History Museum.
Brian recently completed leading the design for the Discovery Science Centre in Halifax, Etihad Museum in Dubai and Canon Canada’s new headquarters building in Brampton, Ontario, and is currently Lead Building Architect for one of three shortlisted teams for the Detroit River International Crossing Project.
In addition to being a talented architect, Brian is a natural and highly respected manager, leader and motivator. Leading with humility, deep integrity and quiet determination, Brian has demonstrated his leadership and project management skills on many successful and high-profile projects.
