We are honoured to announce that DTAH Partner Yvonne Lam has been named a 2024 RAIC Fellow for her multidisciplinary contribution to the profession. The College of Fellows of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) bestows Fellowship to RAIC members in recognition of outstanding achievement. Criteria include design excellence, exceptional scholarly contribution, or distinguished service to the profession or the community.

Yvonne Lam is an architect, landscape architect and urban designer with a keen interest in the intersection of buildings and landscape. She excels in the design and delivery of complex urban projects where high-quality public realm is integrated with civic infrastructure. Since joining DTAH in 2006, Yvonne has played a pivotal role in many key projects across Toronto’s Central Waterfront. She continues to lead and collaborate within large multidisciplinary teams for many ongoing waterfront projects including the design and implementation of Queens Quay East, the second phase of this exemplar “complete street”, and Parliament Slip, an exciting public destination in the heart of the East Bayfront.

Other notable projects include the ground-breaking Toronto Complete Streets Guidelines, as well as acting as project coordinator for the Toronto 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games Athletes’ Village, where DTAH was a key consultant on the Planning Design and Compliance (PDC) consortium team, charged with overseeing the highly specific program requirements of the Pan-Am Games as well as the subsequent transformation of the Village into a vibrant new Toronto neighbourhood.

Yvonne is also dedicated to mentoring the next generation of professionals. She served as an adjunct professor at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture, and regularly participates as a guest studio critic at Toronto Metropolitan University’s School of Architecture. She joins DTAH Partners Mark Langridge and Megan Torza as RAIC Fellows. The 2024 Fellows will be inducted at the College of Fellows Convocation ceremony on Thursday, May 16, 2024 at a convocation ceremony during the 2024 RAIC Conference in Vancouver, BC.
