Located in Canada’s far north, Pin/Taylor Architects are guided by love and respect for the northern Canadian Shield landscape, the cultural needs of First Nations people, the variable lighting conditions and the climate.  The firm strives to develop a formal and material palette that is culturally significant, is sensitive to nature and merges buildings with their surroundings. Understanding centuries-old traditions, the vast wilderness and the stark, pristine light of the far north is a life-long endeavour. Founded in Yellowknife in 1983 by Gino Pin, the office has evolved over the years, with several partners, contributing to the firm’s projects, including Lea Matthews, Harold Strub and currently Simon Taylor.
