Notice biographique

E.C. Horwood was a Toronto architect, active from 1927 to 1975.

E.C. Horwood was born in Toronto in July 1900, the son of architect J.C.B. Horwood. He studied architecture at the University of Toronto (1919-1925) while working at his father's firm, Horwood and White, then completed his studies in Paris, at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and Fontainebleau School of Fine Arts (1925-1927).

He joined Horwood and White in 1927, becoming senior partner following his father's death in 1938. E.C. Horwood began winding up the firm in 1969, but continued to do some work under its name until his retirement in 1975.

E.C. Horwood's projects included schools, churches, office buildings, hospitals and residences. His main projects included the renovation of the Robert Simpson Company and the John Northway and Sons department stores, buildings for the Children's Aid Society and the University of Toronto, and improvements to Canadian General Electric plants in Toronto.

E.C. Horwood died at Mimico on October 22, 1984.
