David Sisam

B.Arch., Architect AAA, OAA, FRAIC, LEED AP
Founding Principal
David Sisam

A founding Principal of Montgomery Sisam Architects, David has over 35 years of experience working on a wide range of building types.  He has directed the design of several of the firm’s award-winning projects, including the Humber River Bicycle Pedestrian Bridge, the John Street Bridge, the Cardinal Ambrozic Houses of Providence, and the Arts & Administration Building at the University of Toronto Scarborough campus.

David led the design team for the George and Kathy Dembroski Centre for Horticultural Excellence at the Toronto Botanical Gardens, which won the 2006 Green Toronto Award for design, and has been involved in developing long term care guidelines in Prince Edward Island and Alberta, as well as the design of four new long term care homes in PEI.  He is now assisting on the Public Private Partnership pursuit for a long term care home in Swift Current, Saskatchewan.  David also worked on Ronald McDonald House Toronto and The Granite Club.

Most recently, David has been focusing on the impact of urban form on public health and sustainable design.  He has given numerous lectures on this subject at a variety of venues, including the Green Building Festival, and the International Academy for Design and Health.  David also recently coordinated and authored a book showcasing the work of the firm, entitled Place and Occasion: Montgomery Sisam Architects, published by Artifice: Books on Architecture, London, UK.  He is currently working on another book on Jeffery Stinson, a former Principal of the firm.

An assistant professor at University of Toronto’s School of Architecture from 1972 to 1983, David has been a visiting instructor and lecturer at Dalhousie University, in Halifax, and a visiting critic at the University of Waterloo and Ryerson University.  David was named a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada in 1998, and in 2009, he was honoured with the Arbor Award for outstanding volunteer service to the University of Toronto.  He currently sits on the City of Toronto Design Review Panel and is on the Executive of the Toronto Society of Architects.
