A.C. Rieder was born to an old Kitchener family and graduated from the University of Toronto in 1938 with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. After serving as an officer in the RCAF, he set up his practice, Barnett and Rieder; later Rieder, Hymmen and Lobban. He established a solid foundation for the firm, designing and supervising the construction of many elementary and secondary schools in Ontario. Distinctive landmarks in Kitchener, Waterloo and throughout the province - public, institutional, religious, industrial and commercial buildings - show the extent of the practice which culminated in the major architectural achievement, The Centre in the Square, which received national and international acclaim.
Rieder has earned the designation of Master Gardener and served on the board of the Kitchener Horticultural Society. He was a major contributor in the development of the K-W Art Gallery from its original site to the Centre in the Square complex. As a founding member of the Waterloo County Hall of Fame, he designed the Hall at Doon Heritage Crossroads.
