Olga Pushkar

"I try to bring a sense a purpose to the architecture I create. I have the balance of formal design skills and technical ability it takes to ensure the final craft of building manifests the architectural vision, and enhances our environmental and social experiences."

Olga, who holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Toronto, has been a member of MJMA’s architectural design team since 2009. In addition to extensive prior professional experience—at Ian MacDonald Architect, KPMB Architects, and Shim-Sutcliffe Architects in Toronto, where she contributed to projects across a range of scales, including six Governor General’s Award-winning projects—Olga is also certified as a Building Science Specialist. At MJMA, Olga supervises the technical aspects of recreation and community projects, guiding project management with her deep knowledge of materials’ and systems’ durability and performance. Her strengths in the technical aspects of design are broadened by her local and international involvement in not-profit organizations, including home-building with Habitat for Humanity in Central America, Kenya, and Kyrgyzstan. Olga also volunteers her time at Toronto food banks and missions.
