Kate Brownlie

Adjunct Professor

Kate Brownlie is an architectural designer and researcher based in Toronto whose work is preoccupied with the relationship between user agency, desire, and inherited built environments. Her research explores how the renewal of Toronto’s post-war apartment towers can help mediate the dissonance between hyper-density and the realities of domestic life. Kate has worked in Toronto, New York City, and Berlin, where she has focused on the design of universally accessible public spaces and affordable housing.
