The Beaverbrook Art Gallery's Manager of Collections and Exhibitions, John Leroux, is the curator of this exhibit, and a retired architect. He expressed his admiration for OG's work, stating, "the recent work by Omar Gandhi Architects is some of the most innovative and exciting architectural design to have ever come out of Atlantic Canada. It is no surprise to me that Omar and his office are held in such high international regard. They care deeply about people, place, and the craft of building. It ultimately comes down to building a strong and connected community through architecture."

The exhibition features 32 large-scale photographs, 23 hand-crafted architectural models, and one custom-designed architectural enclosure created by Omar Gandhi Architects.

Omar Gandhi, Principal and Owner, expressed his excitement about this exhibition, saying, "I'm honoured to showcase our studio's work for the first time, curated by John Leroux. Our exhibition captures a moment in our studio's evolution, offering introspection into our architectural journey. We aim to make architecture relatable and enjoyable, emphasizing its functional and emotional aspects, inviting the public to connect with our creations."
