CTA Celebrates 40th Anniversary!

Today, we celebrate Chernoff Thompson Architects’ 40th anniversary and the momentous journey we’ve undergone. Chernoff Thompson Architects was started from the ground up in Vancouver B.C. by Russell Chernoff and our late Rand Thompson in 1981. Since then, we have expanded our partnership to include Naomi Gross, Tony Yip, and Vicki Sucic Hruskovec. We want to thank all past and present clients and collaborators since their support is a great part of why we’re continually going strong. Over the course of 40 years at CTA, we’ve completed countless projects working for Biotech Research, Universities, Healthcare and Government Facilities. To highlight a few successes, SFU TASC 2 and TRIUMF ARIEL were 2 of the most significant projects in the history of CTA, with the largest amount of senior staff working on them at same time. We are so lucky to have some of the best team members at Chernoff Thompson Architects—we can only describe them as people who are driven, exciting to be around, and dedicated to every project they’ve tackled. To our CTA team, thank you!

We are excited that the building where our office ls located is being renamed Arthur Erickson Place. It is a pleasure to work in such an iconic and important part of Vancouver architecture. It is also fitting as both of our founding Partners Rand Thompson and Russ Chernoff both worked for Arthur in their early years!
