Tura WilsonArchitect at Studio of Contemporary Architecture (SOCA)Speaker
Born in Toronto, Ontario, Tura Cousins Wilson is inspired by creating uplifting spaces of beauty. He contends that architecture’s power lies in its ability to transform collective imaginations and narratives into reality. He is a principal and co-founder of the Studio of Contemporary Architecture (SOCA) and a founding member of BAIDA.
Tura’s professional experience and interest span a variety of scales including exhibition design, multi-unit housing, private homes, cultural spaces, and urban design. He is equally compelled by exploring the craft and intimacy of small scale architecture along with the redemptive qualities of reconstituting existing buildings and spaces.
Tura holds an undergraduate degree in architecture from Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU), a Master’s degree in architecture, urbanism, building sciences from Delft University of Technology, and is a licensed architect in both Ontario and the Netherlands. Tura is a sessional instructor at TMU and the University of Toronto.
