Aedas has set up its first office in Canada after bagging two station commissions as part of Toronto’s Transit City 2050 masterplan
The studio in Toronto is the practice’s 40th office worldwide and is being headed by Walter Daschko, formerly of locally based Walter Daschko Architect.
It is the sixth office in North and South America for Aedas which already has outposts in New York; Washington, DC; Seattle; Los Angeles; and Sao Paulo.
The new rapid transit stations, Highway 407 and Sheppard West, on the Spadina Subway Extension between Toronto and the City of Vaughan in Ontario, have been designed for the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC).
Walter Daschko, director, said: ‘I’ve always been dedicated to understanding my client’s needs and aspirations, and creating buildings and spaces that meet and exceed them. Aedas provides a remarkable opportunity to deliver this service but on an international scale.’
Daschko has previously worked at Canadian practices Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects and du Toit Allsopp Hillier
