Dates of existence



Peter Blewett was born 28 September 1932 in Swansea, Wales. In 1954 he graduated from the Canterbury School of Architecture and in 1957 immigrated to Canada, settling in Vancouver. In 1960 he joined Wade Stockdill and Armour and in 1964 became a partner with the firm. Blewett and Armour also established a second practice in Vancouver. When WSAB split into separate Victoria and Vancouver branches in 1974, Blewett remained with the Vancouver firm, which became Armour Blewett and Partners. The firm later added partner Selwyn Dodd and became Blewett Dodd Ching Lee (1977-1993), Blewett Dodd Canada (1993-1996), and finally Blewett Dodd Architecture (1996-1999). Blewett was also an accomplished acrylic painter. He died on 25 November 1999 in Vancouver at age 67.
