    Hi,

    Credit where credit is due. Ryder Architecture is in partnership with Hotson Architects for the Pacific Residence project at UBC. Adam James, Kate Mather and 3 other staff have been working on this since it’s inception. We are going through our final reviews and two of the five buildings will be completed in August.

    Thanks
