Alumnus Dan Westwood will recount his journey of becoming a successful practicing architect in Southern Alberta, beginning with his experience at the University of Lethbridge and then receiving his architectural degree from the University of British Columbia. Westwood will be reviewing a number of regional projects he has designed, with special focus on the new Waterton Visitor Center presently under construction and due to be completed this summer.
Dan Westwood was born and grew up in Lethbridge. He attended the University of Lethbridge where he obtained a BA with a major in visual arts, and then went on to obtain a degree in architecture from UBC. After graduating, Westwood worked for two years at NSDA Architects before moving back to Lethbridge. Back in Lethbridge, he worked with John Savill Architect, Horton Ferrari Architects, and then on his own for a period of six years during which time he completed his registration, receiving the highest average in his professional registration examinations in the province. In 1999, Dan became a partner with Horton Ferrari Westwood Architects and has continued with the firm until now, where he is the most senior partner of FWBA Architects. During his career of over three decades, he has completed commissions on everything from private residences to major civic buildings and commercial projects. He has specialized in designing schools, a number of which are award-winning. Notable accolades include: three-time winner of the Council of Educational Facility Planners International for new school design, and two-time winner of the Association for Learning Environments for Major Modernization of a School.
