Bindya Lad is a graduate of the Master of Architecture program at the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design, University of Toronto. She also holds a Bachelor of Environmental Studies in Urban Planning from the University of Waterloo. Previously, Bindya held positions in the Planning and Building Department at the City of Mississauga where she was responsible for preparing design policies to guide the physical development of the city. She is currently employed at the Toronto-based practice of Dubbeldam Design Architects, and is also the Secretary of the Toronto Society of Architects, whose mandate includes ensuring that architecture and design are key considerations in public discussions and in processes that have an impact on our environment. Born in the United Kingdom to East African-born parents, Bindya belongs to a South Asian family who immigrated to Canada in the early 1990s, settling in Mississauga. Her research interests range from issues in everyday urbanism to increasing the accessibility of architecture, to more recently, the regeneration of postwar suburban municipalities in the Greater Toronto Area through a reinvention of their strategic frameworks.
