Graeme Verhulst

Waymark Architecture
Architect
Victoria, BC
With the realization that to make change we have to build differently, Graeme decided to pursue a career in architecture with the goal of improving people's relationships with our fellow humans and the environment through better buildings. In addition to the practice of architecture, Graeme has also been a teacher at an architecture program at the University of the Gambia, West Africa. During his time in this challenging setting, he has seen first hand the power that design thinking can have when dealing with “wicked problems.”

He is a keen advocate for advanced building science and the need to move our new and existing buildings towards net zero and beyond. Through his volunteer work with Passive House Canada∣Maison Passive Canada, he has participated in discussions at the provincial and federal level about how policy instruments and changes to the building code can both encourage industry leaders to drive the cutting edge forward, and can build capacity at all levels to deliver the comfortable, affordable, and energy efficient buildings the public deserves.
