BEAT: Mentorship Mondays

July 11, 2016
55 Ossington Avenue, Toronto, ON M6J 2Y9

OTE: The event has already filled up, but interested individuals can sign up for the mailing list to be the first to hear about the next Mentorship Mondays event. 

BEAT is excited to announce the launch of Mentorship Mondays!  We are working in collaboration with local architects to provide unique networking opportunities for supporting and advancing equality within the architecture profession.

Our kick-off event will be held at the design firm gh3 and hosted by Principal Pat Hanson on the evening of July 11th, 2016. Invitations are open to those at different points in their careers and to those practicing or pursuing various forms of design.  Limited space available.

Pat Hanson (RAIC OAA AAA BFA MArch) is a founding partner of gh3, a practice based on a new paradigm that explores the overlap of architecture, landscape and sustainability. Pat has deliberately staked out a broad practice in the belief that design encompasses the entire spectrum of the built environment. During 30 years of practice, she has contributed design leadership to the firms at which she was a partner.

A versatile designer and a strong visual communicator, Pat has directed a number of architecture, urbanism and planning projects which have involved complex programs and extensive public consultation processes, as well as the realization of competition winning designs. She has designed many institutional education projects, which bridge beyond architecture into urban design and landscape.

Under Pat’s leadership gh3 has steadily grown in capacity since its inception, winning multiple awards from its peers. The ability to mentor and direct the work of a young, enthusiastic and deeply talented staff has been key to Pat’s accomplishments and success in international competitions.

Pat has lectured on the work of the firms she has been partner at throughout North America and Europe. She maintains a strong commitment to architectural education and has served as an adjunct studio professor and the University of Toronto and the University of Waterloo. Pat is presently a member of the Waterfront Design Review Panel.
