Matt Roper

Project Architect



Matt has accumulated an impressive list of accomplishments throughout his career as an Architect. Growing from humble and hard working roots, he has emerged as one of Edmonton’s up and coming industry leaders. His enthusiasm and solution-based approach to projects and teams has paved the way for his promotion to Principal during his previous employment within one of Edmonton’s largest interdisciplinary design firms. He was also entrusted to lead the firm’s most transformative and complex projects, including: Lewis Farms Facility + Park; Edson Multiplex; Morinville Leisure Facility; and several major ICE District projects (Edmonton Tower and Stantec Tower).

With over a decade of experience across the full cross-section of sectors and building typologies, Matt has established a dedicated rigor and first hand knowledge base which he applies to his current work. Matt brings this experience and passion to his role within the leadership team at the TBD Architecture + Urban Planning studio; actively leading all sectors within our portfolio, he specializes in Sports and Recreation, Sustainability, and Research and Development. He participates in all stages of projects, from initial concept to project close-out, in order to ensure all facets of the project vision and needs are balanced and addressed throughout the planning, detailed design, construction, opening day, and the lifespan of the building.

I am not satisfied to simply do good work; I strive to develop positive and meaningful relationships with both colleagues and clients… Building relationships based on trust, communication, and collaboration is the best method for navigating often-difficult decision points, and the success of the whole is paramount over individual profit and recognition.
