The notion that great minds think alike does not apply to this selection of architects and designers. As we bring our 15th anniversary celebration to a close this week, we revisit the people, and stories, behind the spaces we’ve featured over the years.

A distinguished philanthropist, a member of the Bronfman family, and an illustrious architect in her own right, Phyllis Lambert is one of the world’s leading architectural activists. This native Montrealer has been changing city skylines for decades—and at the age of 80, she continues to be a towering force in the field of architecture.
