Vancouver based Bing Thom Architects, named after its late founder Bing Thom, has been renamed Revery Architecture.
According to a statement by the firm, “the studio has gone through many transformations over its 35-year history. Some changes have been subtle while others more pronounced, but all share the same objective of strengthening our core values and the passion we have for design excellence.”
With the passing of Bing Thom in 2016, the new name Revery Architecture will reflect the firm’s enduring vision to strive for exceptional design, while paying homage to Bing Thom as it moves into the future.
The firm is looking forward to a busy 2018, including the opening of two new educational buildings: the Simon Fraser University Sustainable Energy & Environmental Engineering building, in Surrey, BC and the new University of Chicago Centre in Hong Kong. Vancouver’s Butterfly residential building will also start construction while the opening of the Xiqu Opera House in Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Cultural District will serve as a monumental tribute to Bing Thom’s legacy.
Bing Thom started the firm in 1982 and has made significant architectural contributions around the world. Some of firm’s well known projects include the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at the University of British Columbia, Central City Surrey, Sunset Community Centre, Surrey City Centre Library and the Guildford Aquatic Centre.
