It is with deep regret that the Architectural Institute of British Columbia acknowledges the passing of Jory Faibish Retired Architect AIBC on April 10, 2019.
Jory was born in Calgary, Alberta on August 13, 1953. He began his architectural studies in 1972 at McGill University, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Architecture in 1976, and his Bachelor of Architecture in 1977.
Jory moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in 1981 and became registered with the AIBC in 1984. He then opened his own architectural firm in 1986, Jory C. Faibish, Architect, where he managed many residential, commercial and industrial projects.
He was an active member of the Institute, and served as Registrar from 1991–1996. In 2017, Jory retired but continued his association with the Institute as a Retired Architect AIBC.
In addition to his architectural career, Jory was a coach and instructor in the Centres for Conflict Resolution and Leadership at the Justice Institute of B.C.
In Jory’s obituary, it describes how over his last two years he lived with ALS and his mantra – “Present, Positive, and Grateful.”
Jory will be greatly missed by his friends, family and the architectural community.
