Taylor Gould

Architect BEnvD, MArch, OAA

Taylor grew up in Winnipeg, where an early interest in mathematics and physics impelled her to study architecture. After completing the Environmental Design program at the University of Manitoba and gaining work experience at Winnipeg’s Unit 7 Architecture, she entered the Masters program at the University of Toronto’s John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design. A love of hands-on construction and an interest in policy inform her practice: she worked as a supervisor and trainer in her architecture school’s woodshop, and while researching her thesis became interested in how architects’ involvement in redefining code and regulations could improve the quality and reduce the environmental impact of suburban development. During her postgraduate studies Taylor began working part-time at PLANT on projects ranging from residential renovations to the design of a biotech office and a parkour gym. She joined PLANT full-time in 2019 and attained full OAA licensure in 2023.
