In addition, dys architecture has expanded the leadership group to include Darcy Imada, Kari Madsen, Otto Cheng, and Jodi Rock as new Associates

Darcy, the firm's Passive House Consultant, has focused on small to medium sized wood-frame projects. Her solid background in wood design detailing and technical resolution has helped to make all the projects she has been involved in a resounding success .  She has recently completed the Passive House Affordable Housing project on Bowen Road in Nanaimo, a Senior's Housing facility in Port Alberni, and a City-initiated Affordable Housing project on Kingsway in Vancouver.

Kari is a strong leader who has been with the firm for 15 years and has been instrumental in the successful development of both architectural and interior solutions for many of our residential, commercial and institutional care projects. She has an innate ability to connect with people and brings her positive and respectful attitude to her personal interactions.

Otto is a seasoned project manager and has been a key member of the firm for 20 years. He has been involved in most of the firm's more complex mixed-use and high-rise residential projects, including Midori, Tapestry at Wesbrook Village, SFU Student Residences and Dining Hall, and Railyard Housing Co-Operative to name a few.  

Jodi, with her strong technical proficiency, is an instrumental member of the firm's standards group. She brings over 30 years of technical and project management experience to the firm and has led projects of varying scales and types from complex residential care to high-density residential.

These new Associates have all been integral to the firm's project and office standards group for many years ensuring the highest technical, design and visual presentation standards are maintained on all our projects.
