Pat Hanson is a founding partner of gh3, a practice based on a new paradigm that explores the overlap of architecture, landscape and sustainability. Hanson has deliberately staked out a broad practice in the belief that design encompasses the entire spectrum of the built environment. During 30 years of practice, Pat has contributed design leadership to the firms at which she was a partner.
Under Pat’s leadership gh3 has steadily grown in capacity since its inception, winning multiple awards from its peers. The ability to mentor and direct the work of a young, enthusiastic and deeply talented staff has been key to Pat’s accomplishments.
Pat has lectured on the work of the firms she has been partner at throughout North America and Europe. She maintains a strong commitment to architectural education and has served as an adjunct studio professor at the University of Toronto and the University of Waterloo since 1991. Pat is presently a member of the Waterfront Design Review Panel.
