    • If you were a building, what type would you be, and why?
      If I were a building, I'd like to be a Historical Muskoka Cottage! The architecture is often simple, yet charming. I would want to be quaint, yet elegant, fun, with a relaxing atmosphere where family and friends will be drawn to gather together to be with each other and enjoy laughter and tears, great food, drinks and sitting around fires. Where memories for generations would be made and my walls would have all the stories.

And I’m always grateful to wake up on the right side of the grass. Sunset, Grateful for another day. So much potential for tomorrow. And I’m still on this side of the grass.
    • Cat, Dog, Other?
      Likely a dog. I think it would be great if the whole family was so excited to see me every time I came in the door! Everyone would need me and I could hide when I wanted to. Played with for fun and cuddled when sad.

    • Frances Martin-DiGiuseppe

      Architect, OAA, AAA, MRAIC
      Principal

      • What certifications / credentials do you hold that are most important to you?
        My OAA membership is the most important professional certification I hold. However, personally, my membership to the Royal Architecture Institute of Canada (RAIC) is most significant. It is not compulsory to practice, but the RAIC is an advocate for responsible architecture, and excellence in the built environment; both essential in my opinion.
      • If you were a building, what type would you be, and why?
        I would be a shelter—more specifically, a shelter for children and women fleeing domestic abuse. This shelter would challenge traditional views, and help to transform lives. This was the root of my thesis; enabling families who have been marginalized is still of the utmost importance to my practice.

        And I would be a shelter because I care deeply about housing people. I am proud that over my career I have designed truly livable homes for thousands of families. While I love the challenges posed by all types of design, creating the perfect space for a person or family is my passion.
      • What inspired you to pursue a career in architecture/design?
        It’s in my DNA. Architecture runs in the family, all the way back to my great-grandfather. My father was slightly rebellious when it came to choosing a career in architecture, but he has a love of architecture and shared that with me. Because of this lineage, my progression was quite natural—even though I was given the freedom to decide for myself—I always knew that becoming an architect was my path.  Not surprisingly, my son is pursuing a career in architecture.
      • What is your favourite construction material? (Yes, Popsicle sticks count).
        Lego.  Especially when there are kids involved in the build.
      • Favourite Q4A project, and why?
        Marnie's Lounge at SickKids. Marnie’s is an inpatient lounge for children and their families. It creates a home away from home for families going through long-term care scenarios. It’s also a playful environment where kids of all ages can have fun.
      • Do you have a hobby, if so, what is it?
        Cooking for the people I love, and collecting cookbooks. I am also an avid Toronto Raptors fan!

        Wood - it's nature.
      • What inspired you to pursue a career in architecture/design?

        Playing video games!
      • What is your favourite city, and why (in 3 words)?

          Football (Soccer)

            • What inspired you to pursue a career in architecture/design?
              My initial interest in architecture developed during my school days, when the design of our house was being finalized. My father would discuss the plan with me, and we would talk about modifications and additions. Later, during the construction I spent a great amount of time watching over the construction and childishly taking part in it. The idea of being an “Architect” had already sprouted, and became my career choice when I was looking for options during 12th grade. I realized, what I like is architecture and hence I joined the B.Arch. course.
