Phil Goodfellow

Originally from Montreal, Phil adopted Toronto as his home after studying and living in Halifax, Ottawa, New York and Vancouver. Attracted by the vibrancy and openness of Toronto’s architectural and design community, Phil continues to find the city a layered and culturally rich home.

With an initial foundation in English Literature, Phil followed his passion for architecture first studying at Carleton University, then in Toronto, where Phil’s graduate work at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design piqued his interest in the changing city around him. The early 2000s was a formative period for Toronto’s architectural culture with the completion of OCAD, presentations at the ROM including Andrea Bruno, Bing Thom and Daniel Libeskind, and a boom of building at the University of Toronto by local, national and international architects.

Following a year working in the studio of Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects in New York, Phil returned to Toronto with greater interest in the dialogue on Toronto’s architectural transformation, both at home and abroad. In collaboration with a team of architects and designers from the Toronto Society of Architects, Phil helped with the award winning TSA Guide Map: Toronto Architecture 1953-2003. As vice-chair of the TSA, Phil continued to foster a conversation on architecture, design and urban form through monthly Urban Affair Discussions that brought together key architects, planners, and leaders in a discussion on monthly theme.

Currently, Phil is an architect with Montgomery Sisam Architects, focusing on how the built environment can impact health and well-being. Consistently advocating for design excellence, Phil has been specifically working on transforming the next generation of mental health environments in Ontario. His latest project is the Guidebook to Contemporary Architecture in Toronto, co-authored with his wife, Margaret Goodfellow.
