Marko Simcic is an architect and artist. His parallel practices evolve through an exchange between the two disciplines and explore a shared set of ideas. Recent sited artwork includes Light Ring, a collaborative work in Richmond and Park, a pair of mobile sculptures occupying the parking lane of a neighbourhood street, for the City of Vancouver. His completed architectural projects include community buildings such as Grace Church and Trillium Park field house in Vancouver as well as private residences and island retreats. He is an ongoing mentor for the Architectural Institute of BC and a thesis advisor and guest critic for the school of architecture at the University of British Columbia. His architecture projects have been published nationally and internationally. Awards include the Abraham Rogatnick Award (1990), Canadian Architect Award (2003) and a Lieutenant Governor’s Award in Architecture (2008).
