Darcy Fraser Macdonald

After graduating from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Design degree (BDes) in 1999, Darcy Fraser Macdonald went on to do two years of undergraduate studies in architecture at Carleton University and a further two years of graduate studies in architecture at the University of Manitoba. He’s been MIA from thesis work since the birth of his second child but his family agrees that he has WAY more fun now.
