The following Corporate Members renewed their committment to you and this association in April:
September 15th, 2010 marked a new era for a group of leading Canadian design firms as they adopted the name DIALOG for their recent merger. DIALOG has a track record of award-winning collaborative design excellence. Founded by the merged firms of Cohos Evamy + Hotson Bakker Boniface Haden + Mole White Associates + Office for Urbanism, DIALOG is committed to the practice of sustainable design with a focus on the success of clients and communities. Working from studios in Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver, DIALOG credits its strength to its outstanding multidisciplinary team who deliver excellence and a collaborative approach to the provision of architectural, engineering, interior design, planning and urban design services.
Design in transportation is about connections - between neighbourhoods, communities, cities, municipalities, countries. The experience is as important as the function.
Airports are more than just a clearinghouse for airplanes, people and cargo - they are the gateway to a region. An airport should be a welcoming and worry-free experience for passengers, and a reflection of the culture of the community. Since the early 1990s, airports have also been businesses that must generate revenue, so layouts have to be strategic, reflecting the buying patterns of passengers and airport personnel. In addition, as airports expand and technology changes, airport design must accommodate the rapidly changing fleets of many different carriers. We handle this through modularity, which makes airports, control towers and other transportation buildings effective today, and flexible enough to meet future needs.
Our Areas of Practice
DIALOG is a fully integrated multidisciplinary practice which includes architecture, programming, urban planning and design, interior design, graphic design and 3D modeling, and structural, mechanical and electrical engineering. We provide our services in many sectors including airports and transportation, retail, commercial, public markets, arts and culture, education, health care, science and technology, government, and energy related work. We have been successful in winning outstanding, ambitious commissions and developing long-lasting collaborative relationships with our clients.
Size of the Firm
DIALOG credits its strength to its outstanding multidisciplinary team of over 500 talented individuals, located in studios in Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver. Our team is supported by state-of-the-art IT resources which allow seamless communication and flow of information across our studio network.
