5468796 Architecture is a Winnipeg-based architecture practice founded in 2007. The practice name incorporates its company registration number.

Development of the Firm[edit]

The founders were Johanna Hurme (MAA B.E.D. M.Arch. MRAIC. SAFA. LEED a.p.) and Sasa Radulovic (MAA OAA AIBC B.E.D. M.Arch. MRAIC. LEED.a.p.), and later joined by the third partner Colin Neufeld (MAA B.E.D. M.Arch. MRAIC.) The practice promotes a collaborative approach amongst its 12 members, leading a new wave of contemporary architecture in Winnipeg. The firm has been described as, "Canada’s most exciting new architectural firm in a decade, one dedicated to applying design innovation to the humblest of tasks, a plains-born, good-humoured, resolutely resourceful verve for building modestly, but with elegance." [1]

One of the first projects to gain the firm international recognition was OMS Stage,[2] which is located in Winnipeg's historic Exchange District.

In 2012, 5468796 Architecture and Jae-Sung Chon (B.Sc.Arch., G.Dip., M.Arch.) [3] were selected as Canada’s official entry to the 13th International Architecture Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia for their exhibition Migrating Landscapes.
