Birgit Siber


Birgit Siber has practiced architecture with Diamond and Schmitt since 1996 and became a principal in 2003.  Sustainability has been a leitmotif in Birgit’s work; she chairs the office sustainable design committee and actively promotes green building design within the office and the community.  She is a frequent speaker at Canadian and international conferences on sustainability and recently was on a lecture circuit in Argentina and Chile.  She is committed to the design of energy efficient buildings and believes that the emerging design language will imbue architecture with a beauty and clarity that stems from understanding, respecting and responding to location and climate.

In the role of project architect, Birgit has focused on a broad range of institutional and laboratory projects, including the University of Guelph-Humber, which incorporates the first innovative bio-filter plant wall.  Birgit has recently completed work on the CANMET Building, a materials testing laboratory for the federal government targeting LEED Platinum and the 2030 Challenge. She is currently working on a new Centre for Global Innovation Exchange building at Wilfrid Laurier University and the phased renovation of Science A, an institutional lab building at the University of Calgary.
