Rod Windjack, Architect AIBC, MRAIC, LEED AP

Vice President, Education

"Architecture is the aesthetic resolution of a functional problem, appropriate to a specific time, place and unique set of circumstances."

Rod leads HDR’s K-12 education sector and focuses on the programming, planning and design of education facilities. Over the past two decades, he has led a wide variety of projects to advance school design, including everything from new schools to departmental performance reports to design-build initiatives. This passion is more than just professional interest; coming from a family of educators, he brings a wealth of personal insight to each of his projects.

He has authored many papers and given presentations on the relationship between 21st century learning principles and their relationship to school design. He is also the past president of the BC Chapter of A4LE, the Association for Learning Environments, and is on the board of directors for the Canadian College of Performing Arts.
