Note biographique

Richard G. Henriquez was born on February 5, 1941, in Annotta Bay, Jamaica. In 1964, he received a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Manitoba and was awarded the University of Manitoba Design Prize. Two years later, Henriquez was awarded an Architectural Thesis prize, an R.A.I.C Gold Medal, and a Pilkington Travelling Scholarship Prize. After completing his studies, Henriquez returned to Jamaica, where he began his career as an architect at the architectural firm McMorris Sibley & Robinson Architects in Kingston. In 1967, he completed a master’s degree in architecture and urban design at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In 1968, Henriquez moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, where he worked as a project architect for the architectural firm Rhone & Iredale.

In 1969, Henriquez partnered with colleague Robert Todd and established the architectural firm, Henriquez & Todd Architects. As Henriquez & Todd Architects, Henriquez designed a number of award-winning restoration and built projects in Vancouver. These projects include the Lee Commercial Building (1973), Gaslight Square (1975), Sonner House in Bowen Island (1975), and the False Creek Housing Cooperative (1977). The Lee Commercial Building and False Creek Housing Cooperative both earned a RAIC Festival of Architecture Design Award of Merit in 1980; in that same year, the Gaslight Square and Sonner House were both awarded the Festival of Architecture Design Honour Award.

In 1977, the firm was re-established and renamed, Henriquez Associates Architects, Urban Designers (1977-1979). In 1979, the firm’s name was changed to Henriquez & Partners Architects, Urban Designers. Henriquez’s architectural firm is now known as Henriquez Partners Architects. In the early 1980s, Henriquez also established a consulting firm, Henriquez Production Ltd, which is still presently active.

Other built projects that earned Henriquez awards include the Sylvia Tower in Vancouver (1984), the Aaron Residence in London, Ontario (1986), the Jericho Circle House in Vancouver (1986), the Sinclair Centre in Vancouver (1986), the Presidio Condominium Tower in Vancouver (1989), Trent University’s Environmental Sciences Building in Peterborough, Ontario (1988), the Justice Institute of British Columbia in New Westminster (1992), the Capilano University Library in North Vancouver (1993), the Thompson Community Centre in Richmond (1995), Burnaby Firehall No.5 in Burnaby (1998), and the New Westminster Firehall No. 4 in New Westminster (1998).

In the course of his career, Richard Henriquez collaborated with many architects and architectural firms, including Toby Russel Buckwell Architects, Laszlo Nemeth Associates, IBI Group Architects, and landscape architect, Cornélia Hann Oberlander.

Henriquez taught at the University of British Columbia’s School of Architecture from 1968 to 1970. He also served as critic and guest lecturer at several schools of architecture in Canada. In 1983, he was elected to the College of Fellows of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC). He is also a member of several professional associations, notably the Architectural Institute of British Columbia, the Ontario Association of Architects, and the Alberta Association of Architects.

In 1994, an exhibition entitled “Richard Henriquez: Memory Theatre,” was organized by the Canadian Centre for Architecture and the Vancouver Art Gallery. The exhibition was mounted in Montreal, Ottawa and Vancouver. In 2005, Henriquez received the prestigious Gold Medal from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) for his architectural contributions in Canada, and in 2013, he received the Architectural Institute of British Columbia (AIBC) Lifetime Achievement Award.
