Gordon S. Grice

Gordon S. Grice began his career as an architect, practicing first in the British Virgin Islands and then in his hometown of Toronto, Canada. He soon founded his current firm, Gordon Grice and Associates, specializing in architectural illustration and presentation.

In 1993, Rockport Publishers lured him back to his first passion, writing and editing. With Rockport, Mr. Grice produced three volumes of the Art of Architectural Illustration and a subsequent book, Landscape Architecture, which he co-edited with Steven Moorhead. Since that time, he has edited nine volumes of Architecture in Perspective for the American Society of Architectural Illustrators (ASAI); four volumes of Shift for the Student Press of the Ontario College of Art and Design (now OCAD University); and, as of this writing, 58 issues of Perspectives, the quarterly journal of the Ontario Association of Architects, for which he is also a feature writer.

In addition to these activities, Mr. Grice is a Creative Advisor to Forrec, Toronto-based international entertainment designers. He is a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, and Senior Advisor to ASAI.

He lives with his wife, Fanny, and his children, Antony and Gabriella, in Toronto’s west end.
