Margaret Goodfellow is a designer, writer, city-builder, public space and transit advocate who has always had a passion for—and felt inspired by—the vibrancy of this culturally diverse city.
Margaret began her career with several award-winning architectural offices, working on projects such as Dundas Square, Evergreen Brickworks and the Distillery District Master Plans. She continued her city-building work with Waterfront Toronto where she led the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal Design Competition and managed several park and public realm projects including Trillium Park and Trail at Ontario Place.
Margaret joined The Bentway most recently from Metrolinx where she developed design standards, business cases and requirements for Rapid Transit (LRT) and GO Expansion Projects, balancing the needs of the commuter with the needs of local residents to deliver meaningful public infrastructure.
In 2010 Margaret co-authored “A Guidebook to Contemporary Architecture in Toronto”, with her husband Phil Goodfellow. As a parent now, she experiences the city on a whole new level, and spends lots of time in the city’s amazing parks, skating at The Bentway, exploring laneways, swimming, cycling and sailing around the Toronto Islands.
