Architect, AAA

M.Arch., B.Des (dist.)

Born in Edmonton, Carey attained her Master of Architecture from the University of British Columbia, winning the Abraham Rogatnick book prize for her thesis, Awareness Space, which she defines as an architecture that elicits a state of consciousness through the simultaneous engagement of all of one's senses for healing. Carey spent two years working in a Vancouver-based architecture firm before moving back to Edmonton and joining Reimagine in 2015. 

Carey’s practice is in healing architecture. From feasibility studies, through comprehensive design, and into construction administration, Carey combines alternative healing, phenomenology and consciousness into every project, as her work focuses on the simultaneous integration of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual within the built form and the body. Through consciously creating space, she strives for all architecture to be infused with meaning, designed with intention, and with an outcome that is healing. 

Carey completed her undergraduate education with a Bachelor of Design (Distinction) in Visual Communications from the University of Alberta, supplementing her architectural practice. Outside of Reimagine, Carey also is a national award-winning Creative Director for the Canadian architecture publication, The Site Magazine, an independent journal which explores the built environment through cultural, political, ecological, and formal perspectives.
