Shore Tilbe Irwin & Partners, a Toronto-based, 80-employee practice established in 1945, has joined Perkins + Will. No layoffs were reported.
Headquartered in Chicago, Perkins + Will now has 19 offices in North America, including two in Canada. In 2004, it acquired Vancouver-based Busby + Associates Architects. “Toronto is a place that has not only a great and big economy, but also a wellspring of architectural talent,” says Phil Harrison, AIA, CEO of Perkins + Will. “So it was a place where we wanted to have a permanent representative office.”
