 Doug Corbett is an architect specializing in the design and planning of ecologically responsive buildings. His completed projects have been recognized nationally and internationally for innovation in design and green technology features, which has become the signature for his design work. He was also recognized with a 2010 Canadian Architect Design of Excellence Award for the new Winnipeg Women’s and Newborn Hospital.  Doug emerged as a professional at a very specific period in Canadian history that was defined by the energy crisis and economic downturn of the 1980’s. He studied engineering at the University of British Columbia, and earned a Masters degree in Architecture from the University of Manitoba.  Doug is a strong advocate of partnering concepts in the project delivery process with emphasis on design and sound environmental building practices. He has taught design studio at the University of Manitoba, Faculty of Architecture and has lectured on design theory and professional practice. One of the biggest lessons learned, is that no single person is responsible for an entire project and that the success of any building depends on the collaborations between individuals on the building team.  Doug was the founding partner of Corbett Cibinel Architects in Winnipeg. He was the lead architect on the Red River College Princess Street campus, winning national and international awards for design and sustainability, including the prestigious inaugural 2006 RAIC Urban Design Award. Doug merged with Smith Carter Architects as a shareholder and design principal in 2008. Smith Carter was acquired by WSP Global in March 2012, and Doug resigned to restart Corbett Architecture, specializing in post-secondary education projects, and design consulting.
