BEAT Talks with Megan Torza of DTAH

  • DTAH 50 Park Road Toronto (map)

BEAT is honoured to have Megan Torza of DTAH Studio host upcoming session on Monday, September 25th, 2017.

Megan Torza is an architect whose professional development has been influenced by a strong personal interest in adaptive re-use and the integration of contemporary architecture into historic urban fabric. She joined DTAH in 2006 and became a partner in 2012. Her approach is driven by the belief that architects are important servants of the public good, as demonstrated in a socially-minded, contextually-sensitive portfolio which includes the development and implementation of two of Toronto’s most beloved destinations: the Artscape Wychwood Barns and the Evergreen Brick Works. She has completed numerous institutional, mixed-use and housing projects for public and private-sector clients, as well as designed multiple integrated landscape pavilions. With a background in art and architectural history, Megan has taught the history of Contemporary Architecture at the University of Toronto, and is a frequent guest lecturer and design critic at the University of Waterloo and Ryerson University. She is a member and vice-chair of the City of Vaughan Urban Design Review Panel and vice-chair of the Toronto Society of Architects.

BEAT Talks qualifies for one OAA Learning Hour.
Limited space for event.  Tickets are available on Friday Sept 15th at noon.
