Dates of existence



Baird established his practice, George Baird Architect and Associates, in Toronto in 1972. In its early years Baird operated the firm as an important "teaching office," employing many of his University of Toronto students, including Bruce Kuwabara, Martin Kohn, Donald MacKay, Detlef Mertins, Barry Sampson and John van Nostrand, all of whom have subsequently distinguished themselves as practitioners and/or educators. In 1982 the office evolved into the partnership of Baird/Sampson Architects, and in 1998 became Baird Sampson Neuert Architects Inc.
