Standard of Dwelling will bring together three Toronto-based architects and the developers they work with to discuss housing in Toronto — from the condo tower to the townhouse. Over the course of the afternoon, the discussion will address issues such as housing trends and needs, the relationship between architecture and real estate development, the evolution of housing in cities, and our ability to creatively respond to the pressures facing urban growth.

Los Angeles-based architect Michael Maltzan — whose awarding-winning work has included multi-family, single-family, affordable, and transitional housing — will present the keynote lecture, providing, through an exploration of his work in Los Angeles, an outside perspective on the Toronto-focused discussion that will take place in the afternoon.
