BTAworks is the internal research and innovation division of Bing Thom Architects.

Working both within and at times in parallel to BTA’s projects, BTAworks is committed to promoting a culture of curiosity and innovation by supporting applied architectural research in the areas of Cultural Sustainability, Urban Research and Material Assemblies.

We are delighted to announce that our firm name will be changing from Bing Thom Architects to Revery Architecture as of Monday December 18th 2017.

The studio has gone through many transformations over its 35-year history. Some changes have been subtle while others more pronounced, but all share the same objective of strengthening our core values and the passion we have for design excellence. With the passing of our firm’s founder Bing Thom in 2016, the past year has been one of necessary evolution and transformation at the firm. The new name, Revery Architecture, reflects the firm’s enduring vision and strive for exceptional design, whilst paying homage to Bing who instilled in us all the courage to dream big.

Our team, many of whom have worked together for decades, continue to move from strength to strength and both our Vancouver and Hong Kong offices are hives of activity, working on buildings for the arts, academe, housing, recreation, research and civic institutions.

All look forward to the 2018 opening of two educational buildings, the Simon Fraser University Sustainable Energy & Environmental Engineering building, in Surrey BC as well as the new Chicago School of Business in Hong Kong. Next year will also see the start of construction on the residential Butterfly building in Vancouver and looking forward to the anticipated 2019 opening Xiqu Opera House in the West Kowloon Arts District in Hong Kong - a permanent monument to Bing Thom’s legacy in the city of both his birth and death. As he would have wished, it is now time to look forward and create anew, as he often said “The best has yet to come.”
