TORONTO – WZMH Architects of Toronto has announced a new brand for its five-year-old prototype and innovation lab: sparkbird.
WZMH was the first architecture firm accepted into Microsoft’s AI and IoT Insider Labs program and over the past five years the lab has developed such products as custom APPs and prefabricated residential systems. Others include the Intelligent Structural Panel, Black Box smart building controllers, the mySUN microgrid and the Sunrider energy harvesting bike.
Among projects hitting the market, the Ryerson University Smart Campus Integration and Testing Hub, headed up by WZMH associate principal Jamie Lee, will be the world’s first building that is 100 per cent digitally enabled. It is also the first project that will integrate WZMH’s Intelligent Structural Panel.
“As we look to the future and grow our research and development practice area even more, we felt that it was important to formally name our innovation lab,” stated Zenon Radewych, principal of WZMH Architects, in a recent release.
