His father was a fine cabinetmaker who taught Seppo his love and feeling for detailing and finishes. He studied architecture at U of T and graduated in 1969 with a travelling scholarship to work in architecture in Finland. There he met world-renowned architects, Alvar Aalto and Reima Pietila and was influenced by them. He returned to Canada in 1972 and in 1973 established the firm of Sedun + Kanerva Architects.
