Visitors to DTAH’s studio will learn about the evolution of the important modernist building that sits in the Rosedale Valley ravine in the heart of downtown. See the working environment of a leading architecture, landscape architecture and urban design firm and the transformation of the original headquarters of the Ontario Association of Architects. Recognized as an OAA landmark building and listed as a heritage property, the building and site speak directly to DTAH's philosophy which for five decades has worked to respect, preserve, and enhance the public realm, while celebrating the intersection of built and natural form.
DTAH has had the honour of helping to shape many beloved places across the city, through our expertise in urban design, landscape architecture, and architecture. Projects that we have worked on which are also participating in Doors Open include: Artscape Wychwood Barns, Danforth Garage, Cummer Church, Fort York National Historic Site, and Parkdale Arts and Cultural Centre – part of the future Parkdale Hub.
