Mila joined John MacDonald Architect in 2016. With her positive attitude and her superb listening skills, she demonstrates day in and day out that she can handle complex situations with confidence.
Mila is interested in the intersection of architecture and urban design, and how we can improve our urban centres by leveraging existing heritage assets, or placemaking opportunities. Her thesis investigated transit infrastructure within suburban immigrant communities in Phoenix, Arizona.
