|AIP 30 Conference Speaker:|
World-renowned architectural watercolorist, past winner of the Hugh Ferriss Memorial Award and native Torontonian.
Michael McCann, winner of both the “Hugh Ferriss Award from the American Society of Architectural Illustrators, and the ”Arthur Ross Award” from The Institute of Classical Architecture and Classical America is considered to be one of the world’s foremost architectural watercolorists.
His work has won numerous commissions for a clientele that include some of the most notable architects from around the globe. Major developers, institutions and governments have all sought out his visionary expertise.
Among his credits are Michael Bloomberg’s Vision for New York City, the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C., and the National Capitol Planning Commission’s 100 year Master Plan Framework for Washington, which was presented to the President of the United States. Recently his drawings were instrumental in both concept design and presentation of the George W. Bush Library in Dallas Texas which was designed by noted architect Robert A.M. Stern.
Michael McCann is considered to be more than just a rendering artist. His experience and design talents help to clarify and stimulate the design process for all involved. In many cases the watercolor paintings are simply a wonderful bi-product of this process. However, no matter how grand or how insignificant the project, McCann brings the same amount of passion to the table.
