Monica Leung

"From my background in both health sciences and architecture, I was drawn to MJMA because it is a firm that places people and their well-being at the centre of design."

Prior to joining MJMA in 2019, Monica gained extensive professional experience as the inaugural recipient of the H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship from Dalhousie University, where she earned her Master of Architecture. She has contributed to a host of international projects spanning a range of typologies, including a custom villa and Taoist temple at Toronto’s Shim-Sutcliffe Architects—winner of a 2016 Governor General’s Medal—and the headquarters of the Fondazione Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, and a conceptual master plan for Expo 2015, both in Milan, at Herzog & de Meuron of Basel. Her fellowship studies, which focused on elder care and housing, now inform her work at MJMA, where she contributes to the design of recreation structures that serve their communities.
