Our Team
Matthew Horch Associate, Architect BED | MArch | Architect, AAA | LEED® AP Calgary

Matthew’s understanding of the interplay between design, natural systems, and technology informs his passion for advanced building envelopes. An architect in our Calgary studio, he has worked on several significant DIALOG projects. He designed the complex building envelopes for the Calgary International Airport Terminal, the Calgary Cancer Centre, and the Kahanoff Centre and successfully led large teams to the projects’ completion. 

Coming from a family of tradespeople, developers, and three generations of architects, Matthew believes that buildings play an essential role in restoring the environmental and community fabric that has eroded in the modern world. For him, buildings are often a physical manifestation of our finest hopes and intentions, and he enjoys interpreting these goals through new technologies and materials to benefit future generations.
