Car MartinMember, Ontario Association of Architects
Member, Royal Architectural Institute of Canada
Car is a licensed architect based in Toronto & Saskatchewan. They studied environmental studies and visual studies at the University of Toronto and subsequently completed a Master of Architecture at the University of Washington in Seattle in 2011. Since graduating Car has been fortunate enough to collaborate with many amazing folks in the realms of architecture, participatory urban design, public art and digital storytelling. Car is also a maker with a broad range of fabrication and prototyping skills, digital and physical. They are interested in the ways that objects and spaces connect people, in the simple lessons we can learn from the natural world, and in an ethic that celebrates the unwanted, refuse, garbage.
Car is the principle of Cyan Station and also a professor at the George Brown School of Design. Below are some of their core collaborators over the last few years.

Neighbourhood Land Trust
Cyan Station has collaborated across various territories across Turtle Island. Cyan is grateful for the responsibility to help shape the built environment, and is aware that the land is loaded with histories of indigenous trauma and persistent colonialism. Cyan Station is currently most embedded within the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples; as well as Treaty 6 territory and the homeland of the Métis in the west.
