Repurposing Historic Ontario: Innovative Approaches to Architectural Heritage
In his twenty years with the firm, Martin Davidson has developed expertise in both historic renovation and new construction. From his early work on the Jerusalem City Hall and the Jewish Community Centre in Manhattan to his renovations to the Ontario Legislative Assembly building, he has distinguished himself on institutional buildings of varying scale and complexity. Recently, he was the project architect for Holy Blossom Temple and School in Toronto, and the new Constantine Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building, which opened in 2011 at Drexel University in Philadelphia, both projects with a strong sustainable design focus.
While serving on the Executive of the Toronto Society of Architects, Martin was responsible for a wide-ranging series of initiatives, including the institution of the Fellowship Award Program, the TSA film and lecture series, and exhibitions by national and international architects. He has also represented the architectural community on urban design issues, serving as the TSA representative to the City of Toronto on the development of urban design guidelines.
