30,000 green building professionals are coming to Toronto for Greenbuild in October; this series will try to explain Toronto to them. Today: another conversation with an interesting Toronto architect.
Terry Montgomery is a principal in Montgomery Sisam Architects, a firm claiming a "commitment to design excellence and sustainability is rooted in the belief that buildings must play a dignified and lasting role for their occupants and the wider community."
Projects range from the iconic Humber River Bridge to the Toronto Botanical Gardens
and the new Centre for Addiction and And Mental Health, that is changing the character of Queen Street West.
I interview Terry Montgomery as he describes his firm's work, what he loves about Toronto, and places that Greenbuild visitors should see. We are sitting on his front porch, which was Jane Jacob's front porch for most of the 37 years she lived in Toronto.
