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.
