It is with deep regret that the Architectural Institute of British Columbia acknowledges the passing of Don Wuori, MBCSLA, on September 18, 2018.
An accomplished landscape architect, Don worked and led many firms; Justice & Webb Ltd. in Vancouver, B.C., Ross/Ruggles Inc. in Toronto, Ontario, Eikos Design, and his own firm – Don Wuori Design Studio. He was also a partner at the firm Guzzi Perry Wuori, and a founding principal at Philips Wuori Long (now PWL Partnership Landscape Architects Inc.). Most recently, he was the Senior Landscape Architect with EKISTICS Town Planning.
Don had a significant influence on many local public spaces, as well as around the world. He worked on several award winning projects in B.C., Alberta, the United States, Portugal, India, China, Malaysia, Russia and Syria.
A Celebration of Life was held on Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 1:30–4 p.m. at the Harris Barn, 4140 Arthur Drive, Ladner, B.C.
Don will be fondly remembered by many AIBC architects and other registrants who had the pleasure and honour of working with him.
