Partner Dean Goodman co-founded LGA in 1989. His 30 years of practice have been driven by a love and an insatiable curiosity for design, construction and technology. He specializes in working collaboratively with clients to translate their ideas and goals into innovative designs. Dean's honest and straightforward approach allows him to form strong client relationships and bring clarity to complicated issues.
Dean is skilled at creatively designing within budget and time constraints. He leads teams through collaborative problem-solving processes, actively engaging clients, engineers and specialized consultants in the delivery of well-loved buildings and spaces. From a child's play space to social housing project, his goal is always the same: to make architecture that fundamentally enriches the lives of the people who use it.
Dean began his career as a general contractor and a partner in a construction management and development company. As a founding partner, he has set the tone for a socially responsible practice. Dean headed up an LGA team that partnered with FoodShare Toronto to bring fresh, local produce to suburban dwellers in areas without grocery stores. The LGA team converted a former TTC Wheel-Trans bus into a year-round, mobile fruit and vegetable market.
