Megan Torza

Megan 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. 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 two of Toronto’s most beloved destinations: the Artscape Wychwood Barns and the Evergreen Brick Works, both award-winning examples of sustainable community hubs for not-for-profit clients. Her current projects include Windmill Development’s Baker District Redevelopment in Guelph – a new mixed-use community following the One Planet Living sustainability framework, the new Niagara Falls Cultural Hub and Farmers’ Market – an integrated community facility for local food and arts, and Tommy Thompson Park Entrance – a new low-impact, ecologically sensitive park pavilion in Toronto.
