Goodweather is a Vancouver-based design studio specializing in work with artists, cultural institutions, and curators, on projects related to architecture, the city, and contemporary art.

The day-to-day work of the practice can be generally described as an ongoing attempt to synthesize spatial design, typographic and communication design, research, curatorial considerations, and material practice.

Selective collaborations with other practioners and professionals have produced a diverse body of work bridging the disciplines of architecture, art, printed matter, exhibition design, and photography.

Projects have been featured at the Vancouver Art Gallery, The Banff Centre for the Arts & Creativity, The Canadian Centre for Architecture (Montreal),  The Museum of Vancouver, Artspeak, 221A Artist Run Centre, Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and in publications such as Cabinet Magazine, (New York), *Wallpaper, Canadian Architect (Toronto), Pidgin Magazine (Princeton Architectural Press), and Front Magazine (Western Front Gallery).

︎ Goodweather founder and director, Michael Lis, is a designer interested in the deployment of critical spatial practice as a methodology that develops infrastructures of coherence across disciplinary boundaries.

Prior to founding Goodweather, Michael pursued doctoral studies at the University of British Columbia in a unique stream of inter-departmental cooperation involving the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, the department of Art History and Visual Art, and the Critical and Curatorial Studies Program.  It was during this time that it became clear that the way forward for the practice would be one of radical interdisciplinarity and a focus on allied practices working collaboratively.

Michael completed his Masters of Architecture (M.Arch) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2011 after receiving a Bachelors of Environmental Design Studies (B.E.D.S) at Dalhousie University in 2008.
