Biographical history

Hans L. Stutz was born in Karlsruhe Germany on June 6 in 1927. Hans Stutz earned the degree of Diploma of Engineer in Architecture in 1951 after graduating from the Technical College of the State of Baden, Karlsruhe, Germany. Stutz immigrated to Canada in 1951 and later obtained his Canadian citizenship in 1957. Prior to 1964, he worked for several Eastern Ontario Architectural Firms. Hans Stutz then established his own practice in 1964, named "Hans Stutz Architect" in Ottawa, Ontario. Stutz designed a number of institutional buildings in the former City of Nepean. These buildings include projects in the areas of recreational facilities, educational facilities, municipal buildings, church design, and hospitals. Some of these projects include the Nepean Sportsplex, the Nepean Police headquarters Building and the Queensway Carleton Hospital. Hans L. Stutz was invited to the fellowship of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) in June 2006 in Vancouver. He was also elected a life member of the Ontario Associates of Achitecture (CAA) in 2001, after he had retired from active practice. Hans L. Stutz passed away at the age of 82 on July 9, 2009 in Ottawa, Ontario.
