Founded in 1987 by Bruce Kuwabara, Thomas Payne, Marianne McKenna and Shirley Blumberg, KPMB's work has become synonymous with the integration of architecture and sustainability, performance and aesthetics. Design Partner Bruce Kuwabara and Partner-in-Charge Marianne McKenna were both closely involved in the Rotman expansion.
KPMB has won numerous competitions for large-scale projects in Canada and internationally. Their work includes the Gardiner Museum, Canada’s National Ballet School, the Royal Conservatory of Music TELUS Performance and Learning Centre, the Munk Centre for International Studies at Trinity College, and Yale University’s Hendrie Hall. Other academic projects include McGill University and Genome Quebec’s Innovation Centre, a new vertical campus for Concordia University in Montreal and projects for the University of Michigan and Princeton University in the United States.
