Quadrangle’s Managing Principal, Susan Ruptash, has been elected to the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC)’s Board of Directors, representing Ontario Southwest.
In this role, some of Susan’s responsibilities will include communicating the concerns of constituents to the Board, recruiting, community involvement including educational outreach, and advocacy work supporting the Institute’s mission.
During her time in the architectural profession, Susan has served on the OAA Council and helped to revamp the Internship in Architecture Program. Susan has also long been a fierce champion of accessible design. Her appointment to RAIC’s Board of Directors comes after her recent return from Nagoya, Japan, where she accepted an IAUD Award on behalf of Quadrangle’s recent work on 100 Broadview.
At Quadrangle, Susan’s work incorporates her passion for inclusivity and universal design. These projects, as well as her persistent focus on improving standards and increasing advocacy, help to strengthen Quadrangle’s approach to accessibility and lead the conversation in Canada.
