Barry Downs has been practising architecture for over six decades, first with Thompson Berwick & Pratt Architects, then in partnership with Fred Hollingsworth and later with Richard Archambault. His projects span a wide range from houses and institutions to community master plans and all are informed by his skilful melding of buildings, gardens and landscape, a fundamental design philosophy that respects the natural topography, ecology and the private and public nature of a site.
We gratefully acknowledge the generous support of the British Columbia Arts Council and the West Vancouver Community Foundation.
