Since then he has been working as a curator and a photographer. He was the founding curator for the photography collection of the Canadian Centre for Architecture (Montreal) from its inception in 1974.

His exhibitions and publications include 'Court House: A Photographic Document' (1978), 'Photography and Architecture: 1839-1939' (1982), 'Tadao Ando. The Colours of Light' (1996, AIA monograph award) and 'The Lost Vanguard, Architecture of the Russian Avantgarde' (2007). His current project is a study of the architecture of Le Corbusier, 'Le Corbusier: the Built Work', which will be published by Monacelli Press in 2018.
