Eco-architect applies a sustainable design philosophy that is sensitive to both the environment and the culture of First Nations people

With so much of Canada's livelihood and economy derived from our natural resources, architect Alfred Waugh wanted to bring sustainable concepts into his work to help preserve our nation's wealth. And by respecting nature, Alfred is also able to respect his coastal First Nations culture.

By bringing sustainable architecture to all cultures, Alfred feels that he is helping to reinforce the First Nations philosophy that we are custodians of nature and that we are all part of this land. Alfred Waugh Architecture designs are not only visually stunning but they are also models for comfortable green living. Alfred's story shows how re-connecting to our roots and to the land can help seed the inspiration to make a difference in our work.
