Episode #010 – Architectural Icon – Frank Musson

Victoria Family Chiropractic Podcast EP 10 Victoria BC

Frank Musson was one of the top architects in Canada and is an architectural icon. He was born in England in 1932 and graduated from Architectural school in 1955. After that he came to Canada on a travel scholarship and ended up joining a top architectural firm in Vancouver and so decided to stay. In 1960 he met the Bentall Family, who were builders and developers and he became their staff architect.

In 1965 he started his own firm but kept the Bentalls as a major client. The firm grew over the years and he took on partners and the firm become Musson Cattell Mackey, now known as MCMP Architects. They were fortunate to have some great clients which resulted in a number of major projects such as – The Bentall Centre, Park Place, Grosvenor Building, Daon Building, The Vancouver Convention Center and several hotels and shopping centres. Frank retired 12 years ago but the firm MCMP is still going strong.

On a personal level, Frank was always a keen sailor and he’s skippered two boats in the Victoria to Maui race. He also enjoys cross country skiing and only last year quit wind surfing. He used to run lots and even completed a couple marathons, but because he isn’t able to run anymore but goes to the gym 3-4 times a week. Currently he lives in Vancouver with his wife Judy.

In this Episode you’ll Learn from my Mentor and Architectural Icon on how he deals with Health and Life:

  • How to navigate the ups and downs of life
  • Why being competitive is important and what that means
  • How physical actions can impact our mental state
  • Why staying the course is so important
  • Is luck something we get or something we create?

There are so many ways to describe Frank Musson (aka Gramps) but here are some that stand out to me: caring, hard-working, generous, disciplined, humble, modest, a life-long learner and seeker of personal excellence. It’s these qualities and more that have made him an Architectural Icon and a wonderful grandfather!
