Pina Petricone

B.Arch, M.Arch.II, OAA MRAIC

Pina Petricone shares her time as Principal of Giannone Petricone Associates and as a Professor of Architecture at the University of Toronto. This dual role is a defining feature of the practice, enabling Pina to contribute intellectual rigor and research to the firm’s projects and processes, as well as to give real projects academic consideration.

Pina’s creativity and love of design has led to some of the firm’s most remarkable projects including the award-winning Fresh Restaurant, the Centre for Ethics, at the University of Toronto, and Chester Le Daycare and Community Space, a new pilot project for the City of Toronto’s ‘priority neighbourhoods.’ Her current portfolio includes an exciting mixed income development in Phase II of the Regent Park Revitalization Project; two new house projects on the edges of Toronto’s unique ravines; a new retail concept for Cumbrae’s butchery on Toronto’s Queen Street; and, the resuscitation of the Royal Hotel in Ontario’s Prince Edward County.

Pina has presented her work and research at several international conferences and symposia, including the IFWorld Conference at the Politecnico di Milano, the Banff sessions on Architecture in Banff, Alberta, the Tectonics: Making Meaning Conference at the Eindhoven Technical University, Netherlands, and recently at the Columbia University Think Tank on the Building Intelligence Project. Her work and research has been published widely in Canada, the U.S., Asia and Europe. In 2012 Pina celebrated the publication of her first book, “Concrete Ideas: Material to Shape a City”.

Pina received her professional degree in architecture from the University of Toronto in 1991 and a Masters in Architecture from Princeton University in 1995.
