Simone Delaney

Designer

Simone is a Designer at CMG Landscape Architecture. Their approach to design is built on the idea of democratizing design processes and advocating for intersectional forms of environmentalism. Growing up between Montreal and the small province of New Brunswick, many of her design justice principles are rooted in their embodied experiences of being a descendant of fugitive formerly enslaved refugees that migrated to Canada. Throughout her co-op terms, Simone has worked at landscape architecture firms in Brussels, New York, and New Orleans. They also spent a term exploring non-western urbanisms while interning at a research office with a participatory mapping platform for flood mitigation based in Jakarta.

Simone is a co-organizer with Design as Protest and a former coordinator of Treaty Lands, Global Stories, a student-run organization advocating for curricular diversification and justice in design education in Canada. Graduating as a Smale Fellow in 2021, she received an Honors Bachelor of Architectural Studies from University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada.
