THINK BIG: Navigating your career within the framework of a large practice


Sydney Browne (Principal) and Peggy Theodore (Senior Associate) will host this exciting BEAT Talk Event. We welcome everyone’s questions/topics in advance to structure and focus a meaningful conversation about careers in a large architectural practice. 


Diamond Schmitt Architects ( is a leading architectural studio based in Toronto with an international reputation for design excellence. 


The company is rated among the top 100 architecture firms in the world by Building Design (UK), which also ranks the studio among the world’s top ten in the cultural sector. Our extensive portfolio comprises academic buildings, libraries, performing arts centers, residential and commercial properties, life science facilities, research laboratories and hospitals. 


We have been recognized with more than 250 awards for design, including seven Governor General’s Medals for Architecture, American Institute of Architects (AIA), Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), Civic Trust Awards, and Architectural Record’s Good Design is Good Business Awards. 


Diamond Schmitt is recognized as a great place to work. We are among Canada’s Top 100 Employers, Canada’s Greenest Employers and Canada’s Best Managed Companies. We strive to create a culture that supports both an enriching work environment and personal growth. 


Diamond Schmitt is made up of close to 200 architects, interior designers and administrative staff, working from offices in Toronto, Vancouver and New York. While the complete office cohort provides a depth of experience that informs all of our work, projects are typically undertaken by smaller closely-knit teams which develop each project from design through construction. 


Our studio currently has 69 projects in design and 38 projects in construction across Canada and abroad. These include the new David Geffen Hall for the New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center in New York City; the National Arts Centre transformation in Ottawa; the new campus of Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver; and the master plan and buildings for Canada’s largest urban development, Vaughan Metropolitan Centre.
