  • About Étienne Gaboury
    Étienne Gaboury graduated from the University of Manitoba, in 1953, with a Bachelor of Arts in Latin Philosophy. After encouragement from Father Lucien Hardy, Étienne decided to apply to the School of Architecture at the University of Manitoba. During the course of his studies, he was named to receive several awards for design. He graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture degree in 1958. Subsequent to his graduation, Étienne was awarded a Government of France bursary to attend the famed École des Beaux-Arts, in Paris. Étienne completed his studies at the École des Beaux Arts in 1959. Upon his return to Manitoba, he was hired as a design architect by Libling Michener Architects in Winnipeg. He worked for the firm for two years before departing to open his own office, accompanied by his brother Adrien who joined him as a draftsman and manager. In a very short time, Étienne established a reputation as a prairie architect with a strong regionalist approach to design; in his own words, "a philosophy sensitive to the environment: sun, moon, wind, extreme cold, heat.” Functionalist principles were vital, but spirituality and emotional content were paramount, thus decreeing that all aspects of functionalism were to be considered: the spiritual and emotional as well as the physical. Étienne once stated, "Architecture must house both the body and the soul." During his forty-year long career as an architect, Étienne completed more than 300 projects in Canada and around the world. The Canadian embassy in Mexico, the technical college in Abidjan, the Nelson House school in northern Manitoba, as well as several buildings in Winnipeg: the Mint; Saint Boniface Cathedral; Église du Précieux-Sang; and the Provencher Bridge; are considered to be amongst his most important works.
