TWO WHEELS AND A LITTLE STEEL

Henry is a big fan of the simplicity and craftsmanship of track bikes, and he thinks more people should embrace pedal power. “Walking, biking, or taking public transit is better for us and the planet.” Thank goodness Republic has secure indoor bike parking!

WOOD YOU BELIEVE IT?

Woodworking is something Henry wants to learn, so it’s no surprise that he thinks wood is the next big thing in architecture. “I see new uses of wood spreading across Canada. It’s a rapidly renewable resource that can be Canadian-sourced.”

DON'T GET ALL WOUND UP

Architecture is not Henry’s only passion—he is also a treasure trove of knowledge about mechanical watches.
