In Memoriam - Mazen Alkhaddam

Mazen Alkhaddam, an architect and OAA Councillor, passed away on Tuesday, July 9. He was a valued member of OAA Council, sharing his insight and friendship on the Practice and Complaints Committees, the Experience Requirements Committee (ERC), Sub-Committee on Building Codes & Regulation (SCOBCAR) and numerous other groups.

Mazen held a master's degree in architecture from the Ion Mincu University of Architecture and Urban Planning in Bucharest, Romania, and has worked in both Syria and the United Arab Emirates. In addition to his work with the OAA, he held membership with the Ontario Building Code Commission and had experience spanning the spectrum of architecture and construction, from design concept to occupancy.

Mazen would frequently state that his professional passions were accessibility and sustainability. He taught students about the Ontario Building Code and project management at George Brown College in Toronto.

"Mazen always demonstrated his strong commitment to the profession," says OAA Executive Director Kristi Doyle. "He was proud to be an architect and understood the importance of self regulation. He always greeted you with a smile and a kind word."

Mazen will be missed by his colleagues on Council, as well as the OAA staff members who had the opportunity to work with him.

The Association extends its deepest condolences to his family and friends.
